I have finished most of the landscape of this painting and now moving on to design the face of the deer. I outline the front of its face to paint it with red color. It's quite challenging because I need to get the division between the front and back of the face sharply, making the painting to look neater. It took me 2/3 of this class to finish the front face. Moreover, I need space for the star in the middle for the Vietnam flag.
This is how the painting looks like on the other side of the deer. I'm painting the sky and Bitexco because they have more space to paint and it's easier to be fixed if I have any mistake. These buildings are opposite to the view of the audience to emphasize the character on the other side. Moreover, the painting would be changed if I have my buildings and character face head to head.
My first step in the process of making the deer parade. I coated 2 layers of white paint on my chosen deer to make sure that when I draw on it, the pictures could be seen easily. Moreover, I would have good control of colors and shading.
Before working painting on the deer, we have to sketch 3 ideas that we want to do that use the style and has the characteristics of the chosen movement. I only make rough sketches without coloring because it takes lots of time for the shading of these 3 sketches. The notation is made after I finish 3 thumbnails to choose the final sketch that I will be painting on my deer. In result, I chose the 2nd sketch because it consists of the irony, style and characteristics of Realism. I think this would be an interesting painting to discover more.
I almost finish with this rendition. It would take me one more period until I get to paint my deer. When I finish this, there would be a comparison and analysis of the characteristics and style of Realism art movement.
After 10 days of adjusting and coloring, this is what I have by far. The challenge part of this rendition is the color since there's a lot of shading and details. As I said in the analysis "The painting makes me feel like it's somewhat similar to Cubism", I draw the shade first to identify which section will go with what color and create the effect to make it looks similar to Cubist paintings.
Today is the first day of the project, and I'm doing the rendition of "Fight for Freedom" painting by Charles White. I looked at several websites of Realistic paintings before I got to this one. I chose to do this because it's simple and it also has lots of shading. I got the rough sketch of the painting so far and there's going to some adjustments to it. I will be using color pencils for this rendition because it's easier to make the shading with it.
