Last figure drawing assignment of the year, figured I’d use my left hand and draw these two goons.
Colour Block Dan, 2013, Soft Pastel Pastel
Poor quality photo, but a piece of homework from my figure drawing class. This was the first assignment where we got to use colour. I sort of… ran with it?
As I’m sure you can tell by now colour is my thing.
Self-Portrait, Oil on canvas, 2’x3’
Well, Intro Painting is wrapping up for the semester. I’ve already registered for my courses for next year and am taking Intermediate Painting in the fall and Advanced Painting in the winter. I will be totally immersed in paint, which is going to be fantastic and frustrating and wonderful and worrisome. All of the important feels when it comes to being challenged with work you enjoy doing.
This painting is a 3/4 self-portrait from a mirror that we did in class. It is also the largest painting we’ve worked on to date at 3ft tall and 2ft wide. The photo isn’t the best quality (as it’s from my cell - going to try and save for a nice camera this summer), and it’s a little dull, but you can see there’s a lot of colour going on in the flesh. Apparently this is part of my “style”, it just comes out of me when I start to lay paint on the canvas.
Also, considering this is my second month of using oil paint I’m fairly happy with my progress and look forward to further exploring with it.
One of the illustrations I did for “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon”.
We had to do three illustrations to a song of our choice, and my teacher knows I love working with kids and suggested I did a kids song. And I was psyched.
