It's about two to three months ago, I started this piece of work with the techniques I learnt in my self-study on classical atelier methods, such as block-in, grisaille painting, light concepts, gesture etc. I was taking this piece as a self-assessment to measure how much I have learn through the training. Surprisingly, I'm thrilled to see a huge improvement.
This painting is my first piece of completed painting since I started my home atelier training. I was experimenting my new skills and the idea of 'abstract-realism', somewhere fall within abstract and realistic. Or you could say surrealism. I'm still need lots of study to understand all the art genre and art history.
