Today’s Art (10th December 2017)

Well, with this digitally-edited painting, I decided to take a break from painting from life and do something that I haven’t done in quite a while. Namely, making a silly parody of a historical painting. This time round, it’s “The Cardsharps” by Caravaggio.

Well, I was still in the mood for painting from life when I made this digitally-edited painting. Originally, it was just going to be a still life of an adorable little tortoise figurine I’d found gathering dust on one of the shelves of my computer desk a few days ago. But, whilst examining it and sketching it, I thought that I’d try to draw my hand as well and, before I knew it, I’d sketched out a much more detailed first-person perspective painting. Although I used a bit of artistic licence with some parts of the background, I really like how it turned out 🙂

Well, this digitally-edited painting was kind of interesting. Basically, when I was having dinner, I happened to notice my reflection in a beer bottle that was sitting on one end of the table – so, I made a very quick sketch using a nearby pen (yes, which annoyingly happened to be blue), pencil and piece of paper. And, a while later, I turned it into a full painting. This painting is also something of a companion piece to this other reflection-based painting that I posted here last year (but probably made in 2015).
