    Recent Works & Workshops Paintings

    Hi all, it's been many years since i last posted.
    After working at some studios, i went into teaching, into my 5th year at teaching now at a local interactive & digital media school.
    I miss studio work, although at the same time i enjoy teaching, sharing and guiding my students. I have around 140 students to teach per week, that's around 8 classes of students. I touch mainly on colour theories, drawing fundamentals, digital matte paintings and I like to run my Painting Workshops as an extra class outside of school time.

    Just sharing some of my recent works. I am still practicing.

    This my demo painting for workshops i held for my students, as a extra class i hold outside of modules, since the school doesn't have. I try to hold often for students who are keen to learn.

    Workshop demo on background painting.
    What I'll do is i gave every student 2 pieces of paper to write in a topic of their own choice, have all dump their ideas into a bowl, lucky draw a few. They will paint the scenery base on the combinations of the different ideas and come up with an original background. It is more spontaneous and makes them paint outside their comfort zone, for me as well.

    A painting demo I did on using suggestions and textures to create an illusion of scene.

    This was done to explain sketching through tonal to come up with ideas.

    Apologize for the dump. Just 3 days ago. I had the chance to attend a Master Design Workshop together with my students by Daniel Dociu, Kekai Kotaki, Sang Jun Lee & Feng Zhu, it was really insightful to see these people talk.

    I see lots of great art here!, I can still recall old times here at CA.
    Thanks for checking.

    ShawnYe: Thank you for posting that colors cube actually helped me a lot with one of my most recent paintings:

    here is the link i hope you dont mind me sharing it here, i know some people don't like that, i basically tried to use color instead of black lines for where light hits directly, following
    the cube as an example.

    Bless you for pouring so much effort into teaching your students! I'm surprised the school even lets you teach outside of your classes...I would think they want to make money from everything they can.

    If only my school had me going to classes with people like Kekai. He's one of my favs.
