Sorry I haven't been very faithful to my blog lately. I took a painting class at the Academy this summer and I have been painting non-stop for the last 4 weeks! I paint two to three paintings a week plus take photo references and create value sketches for each painting. It has been a lot of work and I'm only half way through! But I am improving:-) That's what matters!
The professor I have this semester is a very talented artist named Warren Chang. He is teaching me to paint figures in their environment. Since I like to paint people most of the time this course is very appropriate for me. Also, since I want to do picture book illustration, this course will also be helpful for doing that artwork as well. I have a few projects that I am proud of, even though they can be made better...so I thought I'd post them for you to see. More will be coming very soon as I am working on one of my son right now and then after that I will be doing one of the three children together!
Enjoy these and let me know what you think!
