Still life in dutch style (acrylic painting)
Today I want to tell & show you haw I painted this picture which I named "Russian still life in Dutch style". The article of drawing says about my intention to make a picture stylized as old Dutch painters.
The original of tutorial written for Golos
For reference I chose my own photo of country summer lunch.
It's set of materials I painted: acrylic paints, synthetic brushes & medium for acrylic paints (to make their more wet on the paper).
As can be seen from the reference, the photo shows a white tablecloth and a light background.
I made them dark, mixing black and brown paint.
Then I added some colors of brown are scarlet and canary yellow colors what a background was be not so smooth.
Yes, in process of drawing I slightly "lowered"a horizon line.
I start my painting with the most difficult subjects - from a bouquet of flowers in a transparent vase and from the main dining dish - fish cutlets with fresh vegetables.
I used two green shades & bright yellow for painting a foliage; gray, ivory & heavily diluted grassy green - for glass.
Cutlets I painted with brown, scarlet and two shades of yellow.
For a cucumbers I chose grassy and light yellow paints, for lemon circles are light yellow and gray.
Then I painted a dinner's dishes with mix of cobalt blue & gray.
The samovar (a vessel for making Russian tea), unfortunately, is not an old copper one, but a modern one from nickel-plated alloys.
Gray, black and ivory colors were great for it.
Then I painted a shadows on dishes with mix of cobalt blue & brown - those parts that are closer to a table.
I apply glare in ivory color to have a matte gloss effect on porcelain.
Tomato juice is drawn with a mix of scarlet with two shades of yellow, a glass - with colors of gray, ivory and brown diluted with medium.
With the same colors as the juice and dishes, I draw a reflection in a side of the samovar's surface.
Above it is slightly I glazed with a very diluted gray to dim the brightness.
At the same stage, I put shadows under each object - with mix of brown and cobalt blue.
Finally strokes: in the right plate are slices of fried potatoes with a green onion (scarlet, green, two shades of yellow and brown), wooden handles at tableware (yellow and brown), salad in the central cup (scarlet, two yellow and green), yellow and pink - little flowers.
And burgundy-red cranberry droplets in lemon slices.
I correct the contours of objects, and here is the result!
I hope you like my painting tutorials.
Maybe it will inspire someone to take brushes and paints too
Have a nice day!
Hungry to look at it can not! Only first should be properly fortified, because absolutely "live" bouquet, fried fish cutlets with fresh vegetables just begging to the mouth. samovar-is generally a classic. you know how to draw well, I think that such pictures were taken people, I mean for sale, in real life. that would be a job on which you would "go" with pleasure, and also bringing profit, I really say.P/S:This is just my opinion
Голодному смотреть на это нельзя!Только предварительно как следует подкрепиться, потому что абсолютно "живой" букет,жареные рыбные котлеты со свежими овощами так и просятся в рот.Самовар-это вообще классика.Вы умеете хорошо рисовать,думаю что такие картины брали себе люди,я имею ввиду продажу,да в реальной жизни.Это то бы была работа на которую вы бы "ходили бы"с удовольствием,ещё и приносящая прибыль,я серьёзно говорю.P/S:это только моё мнение.
