Huge Update!

Here are few things from my finals and a few from before finals from TAD.

From the top down. The first two are for an article about the Kentucky Derby. Then one about Integrative Medicine. The fourth picture is my final for Figure 4 with Francis Vallejo. The fifth is my first idea for Virginia Wine from a while back. The sixth is my final project for Portfolio class with John English and Brent Watkinson, and the last is a master copy of Isaac Levitan which I painted in oil on canvas 2 1/2 feet by 3 1/2 feet.

Figure Drawing Inks!

Some inks from figure drawing as well! All sharpie! I tried posting them with my previous post, but when you click on them they became blurry, but when I put then in a separate post, they were normal. Anyway, these are my favorites of the inking exercises done for Figure Drawing 3.

FALL 2011: NOT OIL!!

The amount of oil painting this year was a bit frustrating, here are a few things with a only a bit of oil. The first is a figure drawing distortion piece, the second is my final for figure drawing, the third is the thumbnail for it which I like a lot more than the finished piece because I like the energy in it, the fourth is a figure drawing assignment of two figures in one piece, the fifth, sixth, and seventh are figure drawings done at the pod.

Fall 2011: OIL!

Another semester of TAD down, two more to go. This past semester was definitely really hard, and very focused on oil painting. I really need to update my blog on a regular basis to avoid large art dumps. For this post, they are all oil paintings!

The first one is a plein air, the second is a pear study painted with the help of Josh George, the third is my final for still life painting, and it's my biggest painting yet although I cannot remember the size at the moment, the fourth is an hour long quick painting of sardines under a light (so the smell will make you paint faster), the fifth is a figure painting using the Zorn palette, the sixth is a painting of a sculpture that Jon Foster made, and the seventh is a figure painting of my good friend Kaitlin Demayo in her Hans Solo costume.
