Trying on the Zbukvic style

Michele ClampComment

Every now and again I look at Joseph Zbukvic's paintings and think 'How hard can that be?'  I then go and look at some paintings,  watch some videos and have a go myself.  

It turns out very hard.   The one above is the best of the bunch.

This is the rogue's gallery of all my attempts.    Every time I do this I hope something will rub off and I'll gain a little more insight.   From this lot I'm not sure what though.


And here's a black and white print out of the Zbukvic original.   Fabulous no?    I've marked up the grayscale values in the different regions to try and get a feel for his use of values.
