I used to paint in acrylics, but more and more I found myself wanting the acrylics to be more like oils. Lately I haven’t been painting at all – just using Photoshop and Maya at work. I have been longing for a squishy medium! And I found an artist to be inspired by:
So, I finally picked up a set of oils, revived what little I learned of the darn things back in college, and started pushing pigments around.
My assignment is to do one one-hour painting each day. My objectives are to master color, form, and brush-strokes that looks fresh and quick. I’m starting with still-lifes, and I’m going to be like a katamari: slowly rolling my way from tiny, simple objects upward.
There will be a delay of a few days between when I paint ‘em and when I post ‘em, due to me fumblingly figuring out the best way to turn small, gooey paintings into blips on the monitor.
All feedback greatly appreciated!
