Here’s a little charcoal study. Original is done by guy denning. I was just trying to capture his style. About one hour spent on this. Charcoal on charcoal paper :).
So I realize I am a horrible blogger!!! This semester has just been way too insane for me to have time to post anything, but I will try to get better about that! I definitely want to post my portfolios for figure drawing and drawing two, but those aren’t till Wednesday so, until then, here’s some stuff from my watercolor class.
Had the great opportunity to paint outside on my parents porch while waiting for things to cook for thanksgiving! Still not sure what exactly this is, I just know that it needs drying time (which is the most annoying thing about oils for real!) There’s still errors with the clouds, but again layers require drying time :(.
Hello all! Well this is my last piece for this semester and I can say it’s a little bittersweet. I have learned so much this semester, both artistically and spiritually. The Lord has taught me so much about Himself through painting this semester, as well as a slew of other things in my life. It is a little sad because I am loosing my studio space, but hey I’ve got a sun room to paint in :).
This final piece is weird for me because I dont have a complete vision for this piece yet. I just want to really clear out the blockades between god and painting. This is kind of hard to explain, but I basically just want to let go of everything I think is clever, beautiful, good color combinations, whether his stroke should go here or there. Let go of my formal training, let go of what I know about how paint works and surrender to what God wants to create through me. What does He want to display about Himself through my work?
So I dont really know what this will be, I dont really have a plan, I’m just trying to let go :).
