Hello all, this is my first time posting here in the FF section, and the first time in so long that I have posted anything at all.
What I have here are the two paintings that I have done for my half semester painting class. Each is done in acrylic paint. I prefer oil paints personally, but acrylic was required for these projects.
This first one was done in over the course of 6 weeks, with 6 hours of studio per week. The subject matter consisted of 3 objects from a still life, a black and white matte medium transfer, a color matte medium transfer, stencil text, and a decal. 18" X 24" on canvas.
This next one was a huge undertaking for the amount of time available. The half semester is 8 weeks long, and with 6 of those down that left about a week and a half of working time. With that said, this self portrait is 40" X 72". It definitely pushed my skills, and was in fact a fun challenge. We had to include our self portrait, a map, stenciled text, something that we loved (playing guitar), a decal, a black and white matte medium transfer, a texture element (heavy gel medium), and a collage element (wire).
Here's some detail shots:
I hope you all enjoy. It was certainly a lot of fun making these, and even though I am not very experienced I feel that these turned out decently with the given time. Deadlines are a bitch, but you gotta work with them, like it or not. Also the photographs were not that great of quality, so apologies for that.
If anyone has any comments or criticism, I would greatly appreciate to hear it, good or bad. Thanks for looking.
