Still life with broken skull and phone by Miles-Johnston Still life with broken skull and phone by Miles-Johnston
I know, creative title right? I'll change it if I can think of something better, open to suggestions too! This is what I've been working on at atelier stockholm lately, Oils from life + shitton of time. hope you dig!

Amazing work. I really enjoy the way you play with edges and subtle highlights in this. Well done!

I just don't get why so many people think that "looking like a photo" is the ultimate goal? A photo looks mostly flat and misses a lot of the subtle hue shifts of materials. A good painting, like yours, has much more depth to offer than some photo. But I guess it's the easy thing to write? :D

Why not simply 'broken' hence the broken skull and broken cell phone? Idk. .-.

Hm. For titles, maybe something along the lines of 'The Inevitability of Being Outdated'? Since phones get outdated so quickly, and the skull is an animal that's... outdated in terms of it being dead? XD

At first I didn't believe that you actually painted this from a photo until I saw your signature >.<

I liked your fb caption! "broken remains of various lifeforms"
this looks amazing, I love the way you painted the damask fabric and the reflection in the phone.  
Well done, looking forward to more!
