Here are the two landscapes I finished. These are part of the misty forest landscape class by Tim Gagnon that I signed up for recently. I'm enjoying the class very much, although the videos are glitchy. The class is turning out to be very interesting for learning about shading and light sources. Here are the first two finished landscapes of the class:
Today I also finished an art journal page: "Soar". I've noticed that a lot of my art journal pages have a growth or serenity theme. My life is professionally at a cross-roads right now, so I understand why the theme keeps coming through, although it's definitely a sub-conscious thing.
And lastly I finished a piece in the style of Jesse Reno. His style is very very different than my own, but I have enjoyed playing around with the technique since returning from Art and Soul. It is definitely a very free experience and also a method that tends to invest much more of your self into the finished piece. Here is the finished piece "Chrysalis":
Next time I try this method I really need to take in progress pictures. This piece looks totally different than it did when I put down the first layer of paint. It's very in keeping with the change and growth theme that seems to be showing up in all my art lately. Sometimes the universe speaks to you so loudly it's just hard to ignore! :)
Happy Memorial Day everyone! Hope you have a great long weekend.
