before I upload my precollege stuff this is what I did in the tail end of summer camp a couple weeks ago. First two were live model portraits. Third is still a work in progress.
Because The first version of this print sold out EVERY TIME I HAD IT MOTHER OF FRICK I decided to stop embarrassing myself and redo it at the correct printing resolution. Good old Doctor Who. I remember this episode. Good times.
Annnd guess what else got finished! Been working on this throughout the week on and off. Posted some wip’s earlier. Master study of one of Daniel Keys’s amazing still lifes (Pumpkins, 24x36, oil). My first study in oils.
Oils are really interesting! They weren’t as bad I thought they were. They smell really nice too, like wood polish (not the cleaner though, gotta keep that capped cause the fumes are bad for you). They’re a brush ruiner though and they keep mixing on the canvas haha gotta change my methods.
Seriously Daniel Keys is becoming one of my favorite artists he’s just amazing at still lifes and objects and there was this article in the magazine and wow he didn’t even go to art school he just like. Pure passion man. That’s metal. Not to mention he’s still in his 20’s. He also got to fanboy with Richard Schmid, who invited him personally for a painting jam. Man!! So cool.
I actually painted another one of his works earlier for practice. I think I improved with forms and colors but this is also a different medium (oil instead of acrylic), lending to different advantages and disadvantages.
Summer Camp Day 5. End of the first week! woooooo.
Live portrait painting take 2. I think I have a better grasp on this this time. About 3.5 hours. Oil. Subject was one of the people in the class aha. We still don’t have a hired model it’s just former students/current students but s’cool man ppl are ppl.
Now for a well-deserved week break where I will draw more stuff. literally when I’m not drawing i’m drawing or looking at other people’s drawings.
Camp Day 4. Live model drawing/painting today. Hoo ha the painting was hard as balls but it was pretty fun! Done in charcoal and oils, respectively
Camp Day 3. Some more figure drawing and another wip! Gonna be drawin a live portrait tomorrow so stoked hH HHH.
The last one is a drawing of me when I was modeling by a student returning from Ringling hh hHHH.
Quick post before bed. Camp day 1. About 9 hrs work. Agh i’m really rusty.
And a progress gif cause why not.
