Break the Silence

"Break the Silence" | Brandon Schaefer

6 x 6

Did this one over the weekend. It felt good to get back on the canvas and paint something, I’ll try to keep the flow going and do a few each week. The weather is getting better and I’m craving to do some landscapes but my nose is stuffy with allergies at the moment, so it may be a few days before I can survive outside haha

Flowers tend to give me a hard time for some reason. Although, I do like aspects of this one but there’s always something about it.. maybe the lack of darker values that I’m not used to but when I was looking at it – there weren’t any darker values and I feel it would destroy the flower – although the background could be darker? I’m still working on subtle value changes and becoming more sensitive to those. Hope you enjoy it, either way.

About Me

I've been drawing since I can remember and I started painting with acrylics in October 2011. I paint mostly from life and usually every day objects when I'm not painting outside. I attempt to capture the beauty within these objects and scenes.
