This term was different. I started out super rough, but my instructor was able to shove, scrape and drag me through to some basic lower level of color awareness and media handling. I have to say, looking at the comparison between my first few attempts and my last few, I actually made some marked progress. I am a very long way from being "good", but I aim to keep practicing. I am switching from oils to acrylics though- oils aren't exactly thrilling me. Expect some other paintings from me later on!
I'm posting these in chronological order.
This is a series we did where we painted the same location at 3 different times o day to study the way the shadows worked and also the way the temperatures in the light and shadows altered.
More playing around with light and color temperature. Living by an old graveyard is pretty awesome.
I have one more but it's still a little too tacky for scanning and I'm not terribly proud of it, haha. Figured my last day would be a mega "off" day.
So that's it folks! Painting is fun, exhausting and a lot harder than anyone ever thinks it is. Do it!
