    I just remembered I probably haven't posted these yet. Somewhat older, the symbols stuff is actually from before Christmas. They were made for screenprinting (?), I have a cute black shopping bag with the horse on it on white I made with the screen.

    Hardly a great piece of art, but I was so twitchy today I had to do something. Fun doing no blending.

    I was sooo mad at myself for not knowing how to draw hands last week, I've actually studied something for a change. Partly from photos, partly from life, partly from bridgeman's book of a hundred hands. I don't think I'm learning a lot from bridgeman tho, some of his seem more stylized than structural. I'll have to dig farther into that book, maybe the anatomy part will be more helpful.

    Suncut, this is an awesome sketchbook! Those landscapes are really good! Also it's great to see such a variety of stuff in subject matter as well as mediums go. Great to see that you are also studying anatomy and gesture drawing. I find it more important to become super good at gesture drawing and proportions at first and then learn the anatomy which you can lay on top of it.

    Oh one thing, watch out for your edges. Look for the "lost" and soft edges and the very hard edges. And always remember to check the verticals, horizontals, diagonals and negative spaces to get the most technically accurate and realistic results.

    All the best, I'll be checking back here!

    yuza: Thanks! After reading your comment I realised I haven't really been studying edges for a while, and I really should put that somewhere in my schedule. I just rarely find the will for other oil paintings besides school assignments, and those I have lately been doing in styles that don't really lent themselves to lost edges. I'll have to see about that.

    Birthday watercolor, cause I'm cheap. And poor. I really should do more watercolors, and learn what it's all about. I cringe at the thought of having to buy yet more expensive paper.

    I decided that I was just going way over my head with color when even my basic technique sucked, so now I'm trying b&w watercolor for a change, or well raw umber or whatever. As you can see I can't lay down even washes no matter what - sigh. But this does seem to make focusing on the problem easier.

    Suncut, those latest value studies are great. Keep doing them. It's so important to master the basics value being one of the most important things. Try to pay attention to the relationships in the values all around the subject. You can draw a dark skinned person with a 6H pencil if you simplify the values and keep the relations right. Same goes drawing a white skinned person with a 6B pencil. Try it out and simplify and keep an eye for the relationships.

    Those watercolors are looking great!

    yuza: Nice to see you stepping by again! I'd really like to be able to concentrate on the watercolors for a while and really get the hang of them, but it seems it's going to be impossible now that I've started my dimploma work (?) I'll be lucky if I can fit anything else in my schedule. I did get the idea that it would be really cool to do some b&w oils again too, but, well, same problem here. Maybe next year! I'm basically trying to finish or almost finish the diploma work in 3 months when everyone else takes a year for it. Then I'll start my internship, and just focus all my energy on nailing it.

    I did do a few rush watercolors for a school thing too, but I get that stuff back only after the spring show.

    adammelo: thanks for stopping by

    Not much of an update, but here's some old paintings I reworked before last Christmas, but never got around to photographing.

    Schools officially out! And it's a bloody miracle I managed to get all my stuff home in one car. I managed to take a few ok photos of work I've had in school during the show. Rest I'll need to rephotograph in better circumstances.

    And here's how far I've gotten with the diploma work. I was sick this week from tuesday on, so that really cut into my painting time. Any comments and crits appreciated especially here, since I really want to make this work finished properly.

    I've been sick, so I haven't been able to get much actual painting done. But some here's some studies I've done to pass the time.

    I've been painting at our farm/ summer cottage, yay for vountry air. And SPACE. Tho one day the temparature dropped below 10 C and I had to wear winter clothes and was still freezing while painting. Now I'm spending a few days in the city and buying lots of stuff I need. And doing some laundry. But since I haven't taken pictures yet, here's a quick sketch instead.

    Here's some in progress photos from a few of the paintings I've been working on. Some I've finished even, but I don't seem to have any photos from the finished ones. I'll probably do one huge photo session with them once I hit my deadline and have more finished stuff.

    And my "studio" for the summer. Whatever else there's to be said about it, there's certainly no lack of space! There would be more of that too if I didn't have to share the space with a sailing boat, but I'm not picky. Natural light plenty available, once the doors are open. The easel is way too small for the paintings I'm doing, but it's impossible to move my studio easel there.

    Wow, you really seem to handle traditional mediums well! Watercolors have always been a hard spot for me, and with oils, im just taking my baby steps keep on posting your awesome work! Until the next time!

    Thanks for stopping by .

    Ages since the last post again, shame on me. Got very little time now for doing extra sketching between trying to get all my paintings done on time and my new job. And tho the job is as fun as anything it has the downside of a very tight NDA, in other words I'm not allowed to tell which projects I've worked on and or show any of the work, ever .

    Some new pictures from the paintings, they're damn hard to photograph the bigger they get the harder the picture taking is.

    And some hand studies, which are actually the only really new thing. The latest painting I've started is of a pair of hands, and I figured I could use the practice before going any further with it. Lost patience with the second one.

    I graduated! Good for me. Now that the pressure is off painting I'm planning on doing lots of small plein air studies during my holiday week. Hope that goes well.

    I think I managed to complete 17 or 18 painting. Some randoms here.

    Did my first Chow! Lesson learned, don't try to erase pencil lines just after applying watercolor on top of the ink lines...

    I tried to find some environment concept I did, but I've apparently stashed them somewhere really safe. But I found this test I did of using a bamboo tablet at my new job, it works even if it does look like a toy. Still I'm so glad I got an intous one in the end.

    I'm being so active now I wonder what's wrong with me. Scanned the watercolor and guache paintings I did on my honeymoon. I have this thought at the back of my mind that one day I'll pick up my brush and know how to paint with watercolors. It's BOUND to happen sooner or later, right!?!

    I actually bought a set of guache just for this trip, but I just didn't get the hang of applying them opaquely. I always have trouble reaching the saturation I want, I just need more practice.

    Great works you've got here, always wanted to have the ability and time to use tradition paints....oh well maybe sometime in the far future.

    As for the critiques, i would love to see some more sketches like on page 1, anatomy and composition.
    In my opinion you're really good now in drawing and painting still life and portraits,
    i would love to see from you some more imaginative work and sketches, as you did with the Chow entry.

    About the digital- you're getting better in it with every try, keep practicing painting and drawing and you"ll become pro really fast.


    Alex.

    nonobot: Thanks!

    Fallenangel: Thank you for the thoughtful reply, hopefully I'll really be posting more imagination stuff now, since I've decided to make myself a portfolio for the first time ever! Unless school folio counts, and that sucked.

    I have to admit, I hate scanning in sketches, it takes bloody ages. Not that I sketch a lot either, I really should improve that. But painting is just so much more fun!

    My environment painting holiday wasn't as fruitful as I'd hoped, just managed to finish these three, and was left with two unfinished ones.

    Last one was half painted during the worst downpour ever, too bad I really failed the finishing.

    I was going to participate to chow last week, but half way through I just completely forgot what I had wanted to do with the piece, so I left it.
