Been lately thinking, figuring about different approaches of different artist. I am obsessed with realism. I like tge draw mix paint methid and marks style.
An artist "michael james smith" a landscape artist. Hes on youtube. His style is so off different.he has a photo of place and does the painting of that photo. So basically there is mostly no composition .
I like his landscapes.Thats ok. Photorealistic way
As per an artist idk where i heard or read _ "its the painting you are doing not a photograph"
Another one _ "details dont rule the paintings,big shapes rule, students try to put a lot of detail in their painting by which they think its gonna make it good"
(i am an amature lol , just recently started. Sorry if i sound offensive, stupid,or anything and please bear with my english)
So confused which way to go. Landscapes, portratures, still lives, absract etc. Even the medium. I some times get driven back to watercolours.
Correct me please
