Merry Christmas

Here's a picture of my new painting for my Christmas post. I started this last Thursday:

I finished my last painting, but the paper's so warped that I can't get a decent photograph of it yet. I'll post a picture once the painting's flattened.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

New Painting

I just started this one yesterday:

It's 12.25" x 10". Probably about a third of the way done... I need to finish the hair, do the shirt and background, and then finish the face and neck.

Something Fishy

I thought it would be fun to post pictures of a couple of my Color Theory projects. These are both color progression studies, gouache on bristol board.

I got the idea for this one when... uh... I don't know how I got this idea. I was just in a fishy mood, I guess. :-P

Haven't had the time to start a new painting yet, so here are some doodles.

I doodled this during a group presentation in Sociology last week. Lotta people.

And this was from this morning, again in Sociology. The teacher comes in fifteen minutes late every day, and for some reason, there's a piano in the classroom. So this morning before the teacher came in, a couple of guys were playing the piano. They were pretty good. So we had some nice entertainment for a while before class; we got to hear bits of Für Elise, chopsticks, and some other classical songs, as well as some notes from a Beastie Boys song... I've had that stuck in my head all day. And it's still stuck in my head.

Oh, and here's a picture of my cat, helping me photograph my sketchbook.

Portrait of a Girl

I just realized I haven't posted in two weeks. Oops. Sorry about that. I've been incredibly busy lately. Anyway, here's what I've been working on in between the busyness:

Finished it Sunday. It's about 10"x10".
