This is also a mixed media piece combining acrylic paint, cut paper, and digital work. My goal in this piece was to illustrate different emotions that we have in any relationship, especially romantic ones.
This In-class study is a technique that was brand new to me. We did oil washes, and then worked the painting up on top with acrylic paint and colored pencils. This is the first time I had ever tried any sort of mixed media technique, and I really enjoyed it.
This was my first acrylic painting of the semester. It was a hybrid focused piece, in which I wanted to give an animal human-like characteristics. I have always thought that the faces that men make when shaving are really funny, and I have allowed my mind to wander to what it would be like if sheep could shave themselves instead of getting sheered.
The assignment was to draw someone sitting, and most people did someone sitting on a toilet or in a chair, but I wanted to be a bit more dramatic with it and tell a bit of a story with my "sitting person".
I was experimenting with the use of graphic shapes to make up an image as well as color. My goal was to make it look like the paint tubes were making the world become colorful, but under her umbrella she was still sheltered and black and white.
