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:
Oil paint on canvas, 2009.
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!
