years ago during the end of 2009. my best piece in terms of complexity
My most difficult work ever. it was the most enjoyable nightmare i had ever done till now. i have learnt a lot and i have improve my skills with that mental development.
experience were the problems and advantages that I was finding this magnificent painting kit, sculpted by Alfonso Gonzalo. without judging the outcome, I will tell you it was a real challenge that took me 3 weeks of intensive work. The approach of light reflex, environmental and volumetric me was a real nightmare .. but I must say it is the scene with which I have evolved and learned more by far .. has been a painful pleasure to paint ..
chromatic approach, that i will explain with a bit of time if there is interest on your part is super complex. Understand, assimilate and conceptualize all aspects mentally q affect each other, such as volumes, areas of hard shadows, reflections, colors of both figures, the differentiation between them and other materials was a mental challenge indescribable and also the differenciation between the diferent mood that bothe characters shows in that moment of the film: evil touch against the purity of obi wan. I improved in a month of working what it had not changed in years. I realized the shortcomings of my abstract painting and has been a dire that learning very hard but rewarding.
i tried to do something more similar to an illustration, that achieve the light and mood efect that i was looking for.
