A freind recommeded this site to me; so here I am! At uni, so not all the time in the world sadly; but expect some arty things in the future; enjoy :)
Painted last Febuary.
Quick study of my desktop to get the sketchbook underway :)
Originally a commission, but I got bored of it; and I've found it's not great to force paintings, so I'll try some other composition. I thought I'd just post it as a practice :)
The values and tones and contrasts are a bit funny in areas....any ideas? All critiques welcome!
Back for holidays - seems architecture takes up more time than I first presumed. Anyway, little sketch practice. Might turn it into something later on...
Sketch of corner of living room. Sizes of things are all over the place, but; more a practice in colour I think ;)
Half-finished competition entry a couple months ago. Never completed due to architecture deadlines - but not keen enough on it to try complete it. Might try something similar in the future...
Small commission for someone. Horrible; was a bit of a struggle to just finish it as I'd grown bored.
Well; I've gone a bit too far with incoporating photos into the picture; as a result they've become detrimental to it. The dragon is awful; I should really teach myself anatomy - in fact, I was thinking of creating my own; although in the future sometime. However, the buildings turned out well; as have the colours to some extent, so I'll take that as a positive. Here's to progress!
Day 4 - about 30 mins.
Number 5 :) Dad wanted a gaff cutter. 30mins. Missed a few days because I was at home
I have found myself bored in some works in the past but everything you've shown looks nice and has a characteristic about you keep up the work.
