School Week 3

Totally crazy week- 3 paintings due in a row- and sadly I didn't finish any of them.  I REALLY need to learn to paint faster.  Granted my 'not finished now' is WAY above where I was in my 2000 level classes... but it isn't to where it needs to be yet.

I wanted to share where I got with the paintings BUT I forgot to take pictures- so hopefully I'll have them back next Saturday so I can post them as well as the process on the new ones I've been assigned this week.

By the end of this semester I will have done 32 large paintings (4 of which will *technically* be mixed media drawings; but honestly- they'll be more like paintings when I'm done with them)  I hope that out of those 32 pieces there will be some that are good enough that I can put in my portfolio for this spring.  On top of all of those I REALLY need to get some personal projects done as well.  We'll see if I have time for that :P

This is a short post- mostly just to keep up posting weekly on my blog.

Here is digital painting #2:

It was supposed to be a high-key image based of the illustration friday word 'radio'.  I went with kind of an Edgar Dega theme... but I didn't really get the same kind of beautiful brush strokes that he pulls off.  I painted this one on my ipad in the app Sketchbook Pro.  I fully intend to go back over it this week and bring it to a higher level of finish- and fix a few of the compositional issues.  (Ballarina's are to short, Radio is to big and to far forward in space, the baby doesn't have as much grace in her form as I'd like... stuff like that.  In general I feel like it is really flat.)

See ya later!
