*2 points to all the cool kids who know the reference and can sing the entire 1st verse*
So, it is not friday but actually…Sunday now and I am ending the painting session for the night. Sometimes I still surprise myself on how wrapped up I get into working on this stuff. Sometimes spend hours upon hours just drawing or painting makes me feel like an extremely selfish person. There are people out there fighting wars, or saving lives, living on the streets, etc. and I am just chilling in my rather nice apartments worrying about how crappy the drawing in this painting is… I am oddly ashamed. But, at the same time, I realize that this is something that rules my heart and mind (right now) and I should not be ashamed of it … at least i hope that works.
AHHH forget it enough about my lack of a soap box. I really just got up here to show yall my progress. Or possible lack there of.
the drawing has gotten a bit better but there is still a long way to go! I knocked back a lot of the initially color i put on initially. This should help me as i move forward in this painting. Just a disclaimer
one - i do have a photo reference, i wish that this all came straight from my head but sadly i am not that amazing
and two- i must say that i am NOT i repeat AM NOT a painter I have taken one painting class in undergrad and one in graduate school and that summer course i posted about. This is a i-am-figuring-this-out-as-i-go painting. I am primarily a draftsmen and printmaker. I shall post some of that work at a later day if yall are interested
sooo this is a just Reminder of what where i started tonight
and after my painting session Here is where i decided to end the night
it looks a bit more green in the photo….eh
welp that is all for today … i wonder what will happen next…
until then .. im out
