Urig and Arnold Schwarzenegger discussing Urig's Painting Bodybuilders Pumping Up on Contest Day

Arnold Schwarzenegger noticed right away the 6 pack on Aydin Bigkiv in Urig’s painting, Bodybuilders Pumping Up on Contest Day at the 2011 Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus Ohio on Saturday afternoon. He said that he appreciate how it was captured in paint and what that moment in time feels like for a bodybuilder.

Buffing up for the New Year?

I plan to buff up before the Arnold Schwarzenegger Event in Columbus Ohio in March. Last year I won the Arnold Choice Award, and am hoping for even better things this year. To accomplish my goals, I’m visualizing them.

So I how can I buff up my paintings? I have a few ideas.

I want to be more responsible in all activities I move into by researching events, shows and galleries before I apply. I have to admit I have taken a shotgun approach to marketing in the past, sometimes not spending money where I should. Better research may have helped me better target events that suit me.

I spent most of last year working on the weaknesses in my oil paintings. This year, however, I would like to spend time reaping the benefits of last year’s work by developing individual pieces with a new direction that I believe best fits me.

I think all artists should plan for their future work.

Please let me know what you are planning for the New Year.

Drawing with Conceived Forms – Original Oil Painting Blog by American Oil Painter Daryl Urig

Drawing with conceived forms and using the classical lighting of the masters is so freeing when it comes to drawing or painting. Once you understand these few basic conceived forms and the lighting on them you can render or paint almost any form with your own direction and perception of lighting.

I used this new conception of forms and lighting in the painting below to help with the rendering of the anatomy of the figure.

To help explain this concept further I have created a video on my website that goes in more depth with some visual examples and explanations. You may view the Video for Free here. Or if you like it and want a higher resolution video, you may purchase it online.

Let me know how it changes your painting, it has really helped mine.
