approaching the canvas differently..

I started a new piece about 2 weeks ago and I actually went into painting it tonight. I'm having a lot of fun with this one, it's fun experiementing! I'm about 2.5 hours into the painting and I'm using acrylic on 24x36 wood panel. Hope you enjoy the progress shots.

digital illustration

First time painting with photoshop. I think the perspective is kind of awkward and I wish i showed more of the cliff. But I enjoyed playing with color on this one.

Finals Week

Well. It's that time again. Time to get 0-4 hours of sleep every night for a week until all your projects are finished. I had a great semester though, I learned a lot from all my classes. Here's a new painting I did about 4 days ago. It took me approximately 6 hours to paint. I used acrylic on cold press illustration board. I've got more paintings I should be posting but...we'll get to that some other time. Now to continue working until Thursday.......

I've decided the first thing I'll do once summer hits is have a glass of wine and sleep for 2 days straight. Well, probably not the latter, but that would be nice.

Pictorial Background

This is one of the projects I'm currently working on. It's a background animation from Sleepy Hollow. I'm working with acrylic on cold press illustration board. The size of the painting is about 11x8 inches. I still have to desaturate some of the areas and add more detail. The color is a little off, but at least I have the hue down. I'm shooting to finish this in about 5-6 more hours...hopefully. Gotta work faster!!

Cerebral Playground...

Was a success! Well, to me it was. There were much more people there than what I had anticipated, and plus it was tons of fun. Here are some photos from the show.

A friend of mine brought this to my attention...

I post nothing but progress shots. haha! I just love documenting my process and watching an artwork evolve. But I guess it isn't very helpful when I show only ONE progress shot to the public and keep the rest in my special vault (aka my laziness to upload.) I'm working on it. At least I'm updating my blog more often, eh?

I decided to start on a new piece today. I have a few ideas of what I want to title it. And yes.... yet another crappy phone pic of my work. Enjoy!

Currently loving...

Joe Sorren. I just love the colors he uses. It's like the colors he chooses to paint with are from a classical painting with a modern, whimsical and humorous twist.

Another crappy photo of a progress shot. 16x20 on canvas with acrylic paint. Slowly working and sketching out more ideas.

Hello 2010!

Sorry, blog. I kind of forgot you existed. To kind of make up for it, I have a (crappy) progress shot of a painting I'm working on for my show coming up in february. It's acrylic on a 16x20 canvas. School starts in 11 days. I'd like to get 2 or 3 paintings finished by then. Actually, I'd love to have 4 paintings finished by then. This means I need to start sleeping less, eating less, going out less, spending less and focus on my work. I CAN DO IT!
