First of all, analyzing my value studies, I noticed that my value sense is off. I did play fair and I did not color pick. My values were imprecise every time, and I know this. I am having issues with values everywhere - pencil drawings, digital paintings, gouache paintings. But this is Ok. I believe in practice, I believe in the learning process. I am sure, my sense of values will get better if I keep practice.
Unfortunately, nowadays the situation is: even if I did 10 studies, all of them would have been wrong. So, I stopped after the 3rd.
I know that the final piece is not as realistic as the photo and I know that I ignored textures (I do not know how to do them yet). But overall I like my painting. It has its' charm.
Thank you very much for the class! Your digital painting is so realistic I am amazed by your mastery!
