Realism Is A Waste Of Time
42 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I was trained how to paint and draw very realistically from a young age and I'm feeling really down because it feels like a complete waste. With photography, there's no point. All that time, all that training is basically useless. It has no relevance to contemporary fine art, and modern society. Basically, I'm an obsolete artist.
Basically, realism is just a sport, it has nothing to do with what art should be about; human expression. Realism today is an ingenuine endeavor
I'll post some of my work so you get an idea of where I'm at skill level wise with realism.

If your question is related to Loomis perhaps you should consult this link as well.
This thread's exercise will be a composition study once again. Study this image's composition through thumbnails, color studies, or otherwise. This one should be simpler.
There's a bit of perspective in it, as well. Take note of the depth of field.
