Andy: "Still life #3 --Uncle's World War II Dagger" 11x14"

When I first began this class, I was very unsure of what to expect, both from myself and from the course. Prior to this time, I had zero experience with oil paints, and very little with acrylic. After my first still life, I wanted to explore different strategies and criteria such as intense color, reflective surfaces, landscape and figures. At the end of the course,I felt that I ended up with four strong paintings for my portfolio. With my final piece, I really wanted to do a figure painting. When it came to the skin tone, I used mixtures high in yellow and orange. Painting from a photograph had it's difficulties, but I would invent color at certain spots according to what I thought would give the overall appearance a better feeling. I was satisfied with the final result, being my first oil portrait, but I would like to do more and work on my technique.

I like this painting a lot. The dagger really has a metallic look to it.
