challenge 31

Recently in my painting class, we've been exploring specific value painting projects. I'm definitely a fan. Don't get me wrong, I like color, love color, etc., but every once in a while it's nice to remove some of that noise and focus on the impact of shading within a hue or two.

I've already finished a graphite drawing of this, which was a lot of fun to do. I'm hoping painting it will be also, but every time I approach a project with the belief it will be easy and quick, I'm reminded of how little I know about the process.

Challenge 31 submissions are due by midnight, December 19th.

challenge 30

So I'm kind of cheating this time around. This is a still life I set up for my painting class and I started painting it yesterday. I usually keep what I'm painting in class and these challenges separate, but my instructor kindly suggested I set something up there and take a shot of it for a challenge, which I totally took advantage of.

Thanks again to everyone who has participated and continues to participate in our little challenges!

Challenge 30 is due by midnight, Monday, November 28th.
