    Hey, now, that’s unfair … to the 15th century.

    The Renaissance began in the 15th century. And Michelangelo was painting nudes on the Sistine Chaple in the 16th century. To be accurate, Domenica’s sentiments are more 17th-century Puritan than anything you’d find in the Middle Ages 🙂

    But I agree with those who do not want the site to change. Nude reference is essential to developing as an artist. There is the “No Nudity” button for those who want that option.

    I’m also an acrylic painter, and I would very much like any kind of course about acrylic painting.

    Also, perhaps Hashim Akib might be interested in doing a course for you. He has a book on techniques, one on portraits, and one on cityscapes.

    Beautiful! I think you did a fantastic job of capturing this image. The only thing I can say that may improve this image is to remove the hair around her eye. I know it’s in the photo, but for me, it’s a little distracting. I’m not even sure this would improve the image; it’s just a personal preference.

     

    Again — outstanding work!

    Thank you, Joshua!

     

    After reading my post, I want to clarify that I have nothing against Watts Atelier or Jeff Watts. I think Jeff Watts is an incredible draftsman and painter, but he teaches at a high level. (He himself admits as much.) At this moment in my training, I think I need a more basic approach.

     

    I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at the different courses here at NMA and I’m eager to study several of them. But for now, my primary focus in on the head and the figure.
