Waiting For A Place to Happen by benke33 Waiting For A Place to Happen by benke33
Waiting For A Place To Happen
36"x36", acrylic on canvas
This turned into a marathon (about 2 months), turned out to be the largest and most detailed work I've completed. Really happy with it but glad it's done :)

I admire artists who paint realistic paintings in the traditional way.  This acrylic painting of yours certainly meets that criteria.  One cannot dispute the realistic look of your subject, so strategically positioned well above the rooftops of buildings and vehicles that look like toys when viewed from such height. Your close attention to details is excellent.  I am not at all surprised it took you about 2 months to complete this.  :iconwonderwomanplz:

wow!!! I have just started dabbling in painting this year-
finding it a mixed blessing and curse- im getting pleasing results but waiting for each bit to dry is excruciating. perhaps i should try acrylic sometime. i just went straight from pen drawings to oil paints lol
i never had to wait to create before.

nice thing about acrylics is no wait time (about 15-30 minutes to dry)... negatives are a lot of preplanning on how to handle edges and it doesn't leave a lot of room to experiment. Just dont have the patience for oils haha

i tried watercolour as a kid but something about oils spoke to me. i guess i should be practicing daily now but i never seem to pick up the brush:(
dunno..... im a drawing artist myself so its strange for me.
i love how detailed all your works are! so crisp and stark in contrast!

thanks, the plan when I started doing the black and white paintings were to try and transfer my drawing style to my painting process.

The details are fantastic and I can really appreciate the amount of work that went in to this. It just seems there should be a sense or gravity or motion possibly in her hair or scarf? Niggling I know, with how great everything else is.

thanks Michael. I may soften out the edges on the scarf and the hair a bit more, was debating that same issue.
