Bananas! These bananas had no idea they would be immortalized in a still life when I picked them up off the stand at Safeway. To be honest, I had no idea either. 😛 They just looked like they’d be fun to paint so I moved them off my kitchen counter and onto my still life platform and bam! – banana painting.
~90 minutes in Photoshop
I only saved a couple progress steps:
I’m so happy with how this one turned out! Here’s Jim’s metal baby rattle and cup again, this time in a more traditional lighting setup (one ordinary white bulb off to the left, and a couple of ambient white bulbs elsewhere in the room).
I even saved some WIPs from this ~2.5 hour painting study.
Circa early 2003. I always thought this painting was hideous, I am so not an abstract artist and WTF is with the clashing colors?
This was probably from my gen ed art courses that I did at community college before art school, possibly something color-theory related since it’s made out of colors I’d have never picked myself. I’m guessing that based on the heavy use of acrylic painting. My gen ed art teachers were so hot for acrylics. I am so not.
Fixed some things that were bugging me. (Previously) It’s loose and sketchy, but I like it that way.
Also, I’m back! My new place isn’t quite unpacked yet (and the previous place is far from sold) but it’s got Internet, my computer, and a bed so it’s really got all I need. 🙂
He was gonna eat his bread loaf in peace but then Airika swiped his cape right off his back.
~5 hours Photoshop
I just really wanted to paint something with a sunset palette!
I put this painting down for a while but came back to it today to add some evil wolves and improvements all over.
