Her Violin by HungryxHungryxHippos Her Violin by HungryxHungryxHippos
Oil Painting

This is an oil painting of my sister with her violin. =) This piece was really a challenge for me given that I was aiming for a more impressionist feel. :)
I really consider this piece a new milestone on my journey through art. I know the media... now I need to learn how to bend it to my will. :D

Edit: Wow a daily deviation! Thanks so much `PurpelBlur and thanks to everyone else for the faves and what not, I appreciate your support! :huggle:

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-26
A poetic capture of the relationship between a musician and violin.

Her Violin by =HungryxHungryxHippos ( Featured by PurpelBlur )
:iconxxrenamiaxx:
Extremely good, and detailed drawing of a woman holding her violin. She nearly looks real! One thing you need to improve is the way you shaded her neck. It looked as if she was too hot, and going red!! Apart from that though, the hair must have been one of the things you spent most time on, as it looks pretty much the best thing!
The dress even looks like fabric!! Her hand look very boney, but I cannot tell if you wanted that or not. The violin looks authentic!!
Carry on with these wonderful drawings! They impress everyone! I'm sure!
What do you think?

Well thank you. :) Indeed she is, she's got natural pretty blonde hair and big blue eyes! I get jealous sometimes. Heehee. =P She's a real sweetie though, and still loves music!

I have a very good instructor who taught me how to use oil paints. :D She definitely taught me well.

I know how that is. My sister has blonde hair and blue eyes. I never minded the hair, but I wanted those eyes. I've got dark hair and hazel eyes. xD

I want /your/ instructor. :D lol!

Hey,

I'm so sorry, I totally missed your message! It just popped out at me when someone else commented. o.O

Thank you for your kind comments. :hug:

I truly hope there is an aterlife, thinking there might not be one is just... frightening somehow to me. I just have to keep believing. :)

I really like how passionate the musician appear to gaze at the instrument. This piece makes me think about connecting with your passion, the way that she looks down with he eyes closed. She seems to be peacefully escaping from everyday worries.

On a technical side, I really enjoy the strokes here.The strokes of color nicely introduce and explain the depth and form of the skin. The white portion of the neck seems to really stand out to me however I am not sure if that was intentional.I like how blonde the hair is bringing the eye to the face first influencing the eye of the viewer in an unforced way.

Congrats on the Daily Deviation that's Awesome:squee:

Ah, the white bit is actually a blue (not captures so well on camera) used to cool down the very hot colors, since it's an impressionist painting it was intentional. :)

Wow, just wow. The light on her hair is burning, but I like the depth your potrayed, and how she's gently stroking the violin, and the details are just amazing, I mean, look at the lips, look at the hand, the violin, the dress, it's all there. Fantastic !

The hair is beautifully and smoothly painted! Sorry, that's the first thing that occurred to me. I really like the saturation of red in the picture, especially the skin - really gives a feeling of the cramped, hot party or bar room with musicians trying to play amidst the noise...
