Studio update

Inktober 2018

Hello again!

I thought I would give an update on my drawings for inktober, a month of daily ink/pen drawings. There is usually a prompt but I'm not currently following it.  

If you're following me on Instagram you will see my posts there first.

Current Projects

I know many of you probably checked on Sunday for my update of photos, but something came up and I realized I needed more time to photograph work properly for the website. So here are some images of in progress works. 

I've sold the building watercolors during the midsummer festival. But I'm currently working on two pastels and Inktober. If you don't know what inktober is, its when you draw every day in ink for the month of October. 

I'm looking to submit my two pastel pieces to the Lyme alumni show coming up in December. I'm also hoping to complete a few collages in the next few weeks. I've collected lots of material and now I'm searching for building materials to start working on. 

Thanks for checking in!

Juried Show tomorrow!

Hello again!
Now that we are back in school and the ball is rolling again, I've got new projects and pieces to show off. Tomorrow is the Annual Juried Student Show and I'm very pleased to announce I have two pieces in! There is also a show down the street at the Old Lyme Town Hall opening on  Friday Feburary 17th at 4:30pm. Sadly I have class during that time but I will ask to step out. 

I'm currently working on new collages and finished the red house painting. I'm pleased with where it is at. My collages are getting stronger and I'm thinking of ways to display them in the senior show in April. If you want to get a sneak peak of my work before the senior show you can come to the Juried Show tomorrow and look into my studio. The seniors have cleared out an area to show some work as well. 

 

Above is a small slideshow of things I have been working on in Concept Art Class. From left to right; a 16-bit pixel character, a (unfinished) map for a game , and armor inspired by something from nature (pangolin) 

This piece, titled Paper Plains , will be in the student exhibition. 

This piece, Titled Vacation Home will be in the town Hall show, including another piece called Factory Tin Cans

Three Days until Midway Critique

12/5

Today I am taking photographs of my work to make a presentation for one of my classes. I'm having some trouble getting my images perfectly focused. Even though I have a nice camera, its almost 10 years out of date. I'm currently working on a few different projects for the senior show, I'm also trying to catch up on work for my Painting III class. My midway critique went down hill so I'm starting some new paintings or more interesting collages and scraping my old idea. 

The painting to the right is an update on the one seen in the studio. This one will go into the senior show. I'm alittle nervous about the critique considering my quarterly crit. They focused on the way I was painting and went off topic rather than just talking about my works or anything else besides one painting. Fingers crossed. 

 

The Holiday Sale was this weekend, we had a huge outcome. Some see the show while it is still up until December 10th 2016.
