Painting II Recap : Part 2

Here are a couple more of the alla prima practice paintings I did early in the semester. The one's with shoes and pastries did not end up all that great, especially the pastries. Everything was too similar in color and I had a hard time defining where they each object began and ended. But it's all just practice and I learned a bit from doing it. I did however make a conscious attempt to apply the paint more heavily and succeeded on that front.

Illustration Friday - Cars

My car hit 200000 miles over the weekend and it just so happens that this week's IF topic is 'cars'. So here's what I came up with as a little tribute to my car.


Painting II Recap : Part 1

Well, I've done a ton of work over the past semester and have been mostly too busy to post any of it here, as you may have noticed by the lack of posts. So over the next few weeks I'm going to try to post more frequently with current work as well as the work I did while in school.

Here's the first painting I did. A still life of an apple and banana sitting in a bucket, and that's an egg over on the left edge. I thought it turned out fairly well, but my teacher only gave me a 'B'. He said I needed to apply the paint thicker.

While we're on the topic of fruit I figured I'd post this fruit bowl alla prima again. (this photo is a little better) We did these paintings once a week as practice during the first half of the semester.

Fantasy Landscape

My latest assignment for my digital art class. I began sketching a few ideas and finally went with the mountain one.
