Your use of texture, detail, and clean edges and well-lit forms, especially on so small a canvas, is something I adore!

I am no painter, but I greatly admire your work. It's flowing grace and organic surfaces are beautiful. Thank you very much for sharing it here. :nod:

dude that's tiny... how did you manage so much detail?
Reply
:icondavepalumbo:
davepalumbo Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013
no really, I don't have a satisfying answer other than maybe just working with my nose really close to the painting. careful brushwork, much attention to shape, value, and edge and it creates the illusion of dimension and detail
