It’s very wordy…if you’re that way inclined.
This is a copy of probably his most famous painting. We eased into the process of painting by using only black and white paints for the first assignment. I found that really helpful because the things I do in drawing transfered pretty directly with this technique. It made the addition of color less…horrifying!
Acrylic on Masonite.
Acrylics practically dry as you are applying them! I found that to be extremely frustrating, but other than the built in kvetching inherent to the medium, I enjoyed this project.
Going back a way for this one. Entering the 4 year college as a studio art major. This is a perfect time for me to think about where I’ve come from because it’s all happening pretty fast now. Exciting and a bit scary, but it’s a step I’m ready for. (This is a drawing from a photograph. I do not remember the photographers name. Who am I kidding…I don’t even remember where I saw this!)
If you always look down, you miss the beauty of what's around you in each of life's fleeting moments. The precious experience of simply being in the moment. If you never look down, you won't see that five dollar bill the guy in front of you dropped.
