Painting Class Project: #4

To begin, I will deliver on my Still Life painting. Do note, I needed to tweak two things on it before it was done.  Take a guess what. People enjoyed it and I am really proud of it. I normally don’t do still life pieces but setting this one up with personal items, over a stupid bowl of fruit gave the painting more substance and meaning.

And you might wonder why there is only a painting of the Still Life and not one of the current assignments. Well I’m not even close to being done with the Time assignment. I have the idea and concept. The background is mostly finished; I am currently working on the mid-ground. The good news is that we have a “catch-up” week, so I will be able to work on this for an extra week along with other pieces.

We were notified that in two weeks, we’ll be working on the self-portrait. I will be thinking about what I want to do for that. My teacher is really good about not limiting us in what we want to do, even making the self portrait something that’s representative and not actual.

I have a surprise coming up, but I’m not even close to being ready to spill the beans, so you’ll have to wait, In the meantime, let me know what’s on your brain.

Painting Class Project: #3

So you may be wondering why I don’t have a picture to go along with this week’s assignment. Well I haven’t finished it. Currently it’s about 90% done. I need to do a few more things and finalize with a few details. I normally don’t paint still life, but I really had lots of fun with this one.

I have a feeling that I might not be done with the next painting on time either since the first idea I already have for it requires a lot of work and it would take more than the allotted week. I have to figure out exactly what I’m going to do.

I promise I will have at least one picture to showcase next week. Pinky swear! (unless I’m dead)

Painting Class Project: #2

This painting was supposed to incorporate tons of colors and didn’t have to be any particular theme. Tons of color wasn’t expressed correctly and so I ended up painting a muted winter mountain scene that needed more color. After my let down, I went up to the school store and bought a canvas to work on a new painting. I laid down a bunch of paint to more or less do the assignment.

After a little bit, something more substantial hit me, and I figured out an interesting way to get something that had some substance done. I’m not sure what’s going on with the class but I’m not having much luck with the assignments. It turned out sub-par and I need to re-do the piece. The work I do for the class looks like mediocre student art. Weird (and annoying).


Let me know what you think.

Painting Class Project: #1

So I recently completed my first painting project for class. It was supposed to be a grid painting with a few other various elements and rules applied to it. I honestly hate the way it turned out. The thought of “If you try and fail, don’t try again unless you have what you need to succeed” was re-enforced. I didn’t have the correct materials to get what I wanted done and so I did what I could with what I had.

The only reason why I’m leaving it for the time being is I don’t want to paint over it since I don’t have a new idea. Also, the class enjoyed it and my teacher liked it. So I figure why touch it if I don’t need to (for the time being anyway). I might be selling or re-painting all of the student work I will be doing during the course. Depends on what I produce, so stay vigilante and informed!

 


With the reminder that this is student work, let me know what you think.

Taking A Step Back

Title says it all. I am chillin’ out on my art for the next month roughly. I have been and need to continue to focus on school. I only have a little bit left anyway, roughly be done around the 15th of May. I have been doing things here and there but I have been in study mode getting (mostly) good grades to improve my gpa. There are a few other school related things and IRL that have taken up time. I haven’t stopped completely, just haven’t been up in my art sanctum doing too much. I promise when I do finish anything else, I will post pics.

I did have lots of fun at the Bruins game yesterday. Let the Playoffs begin!

I guess I must post a song that fits a brief time of leaving. Rosetta – Monument
