From Leah -
This painting is one of three Color Theory pictures I'm doing. It didn't turn out as well as I wanted, and it still needs a little work, but I have to fight my perfectionist brain for now and move on to the next two. It's hard painting paint I guess. I do kinda like how the paint brushes look, though.
This is a drawing I am working on in Drawing 101. I have redone
her face too many times, but this last time has satisfied me. The
biggest problem is, in this class, I'm not allowed to finger smudge to
shade and blend the pencil better. It's harder I guess, but I can still
do it, and I think this picture will still turn out quite beautiful.
From Sarah -
We are working on finals this month. In Color Theory, we are taking three pictures of the same subject and applying different schemes to each. They are not finished yet, but I think I've learned a lot about contrast, compliments, and technique. I am especially glad that I was able to do this at all, since I really have not dabbled much in painting previously; but I think it could be fun with more practice.
I did finish my Colored Pencil class final, though. Burnishing the background color really makes the picture pop and become more rich. It was really fun learning how to layer and blend the colors, and I hope to do more colored pencil works!
