I loved painting this one. Somehow photos are just not good enough, but it is tricky to get all subtle nuances.

    Some of your best tonal work by a long shot.  Fantastic work all around Jakob.

  • Rhiana, "Cyradis"

    I really love the soft red. It reminds me of a well loved garment - one that is cared for well, but perhaps has lost some of the original intense reds after a few washes. The age spots upon the man’s head and few wisps of hair are great touches that help give him more life too :)

    • Jakob VillienPLUS

      Ah that is so interesting! Thanks. Actually, the cloth was so hard. And mostly I tried to not have it pink and ‘washed out’ - but bright and pure. Well-maintained and cared for - even if old. But I like this too. Happy accidenta. Thank you.

    • Rhiana, "Cyradis"

      I don’t think it is pink - it definitely reads as red! Just a bit softer. My red shirts are still very red, but they no longer bleed dye if they get wet. It isn’t a bloody red either. It has the well-maintained part for sure. I think balancing the well-maintained but also used is tough, and you got it.

  • Mariano del Olmo

    Nice painting Jakob!! Best, Mariano

  • Giuseppe

    A very balanced palette. Bravo!

    • Jakob VillienPLUS

      Thank you so much! It is a limited pallette for sure. I suppose I could have used some more colour harmony :)

  • Francois "Frado" Daugny

    Excellent. I really like the face and the most particularly the hair!! Painting is of very high quality. Gold!!

    • Jakob VillienPLUS

      Thank you so much. I actually quite enjoyed the hair - and it was fun to flick those tiny hairs on. So I am glad it ‘worked’.

  • Roman LappatPLUS

    Cracking job dude. You have nailed the red material of that shirt. I love all the little details in the skin as well, the blemishes, the hair and that lighting!
    Amazing mate, gold and Editors

    • Jakob VillienPLUS

      Thanks so much mate. I think the balance (and harmony) is the trick with this. Keeping everything in tune. A lot of back and forth.

  • Marc MussatPLUS

    in love with this bust !
    painting comes out beautifully and enhances the figure !

    • Jakob VillienPLUS

      Thanks a lot Marc. I think with a beauty like this, it pretty much paints itself. So much emotion in the sculpt.
