Oil paint on canvas, 2013.
Finished this painting a couple days back, but just got around to getting some photos of it today! If you have seen my Instagram, you may have seen a preview of this already. This one is sort of reminiscent of the first oil painting I ever painted back in 2009 for art IB.. which i’ll bring back from the dead, here:

Sketchbook doodles! One thing that I love so much about them is that they’re a great way to occupy a few hours and just let my mind wander.
One week left of winter break until I head back to school. I’ve been throwing all this free time i’ve had so far into drawing and painting. Just finished an oil painting (which is the first painting i’ve done since graduating high school!), and actually immediately started another one the day after. Feels like its going to be difficult to switch my brain back in to a numbers/math mindset for when my classes start up again since its been so much on the artsy side recently!
First time painting again since finishing Art IB in highschool. Its been a while! The interesting thing though, is that even though I haven’t done any paintings since high school, I can still see some growth comparing this piece to my old work.
Started this painting this a couple weeks ago, and made decent progress in just a couple days at was pretty much at a completion point. But then I hit a roadblock, and wasn’t pleased with anything I did with the background, so I left it for about two weeks. Ideas just came to mind today again, so I spent a couple hours this afternoon finishing it up. I am actually very pleased with the outcome!

And a couple closer up detail shots,
Lily of LLYMLRS! I did another drawing of her a while back, posted here. I’ve been frequenting this blog for so long that another drawing was inevitable. Definitely a blog to check out - it is one of my favorites! I also tried something new with the post processing. I quite like how it turned out, so look to see more of these in the future.
Anyway I should get back to packing everything up to head back to school. I told myself not to pack as many clothes when I head down this year, but I can’t seem to cut down. I still filled up an entire hockey bag and suitcase with clothes somehow..
One more day in Calgary!
