“Suspended” now has some lines and some shapes.

The lesson I learned today, about oil paint, was that I either need to wait longer between layers or have more paint on my brush. There was much mixing of the background with the foreground and, thus, swearing.

Don’t worry about that carpet. It was purchased specifically to get dirty.

Suspended Project Day 1 Tue, 17 Nov 2009 03:51:11 +0000 Laurel Green Suspended Background

This is the background for an oil paint practice project that I’m doing. It’s still very much wet and it’s likely to stay that way for a while, what with being oil paint and all. I’ll have to wait a day or two before it’s dry enough for the next layer.

This was my first ever time of using a palette knife. It was exciting!

Mystery Project Day 3 Mon, 16 Nov 2009 03:57:50 +0000 Laurel Green Mystery Project Day 3

Here’s the “Mystery Project” again. I’m going to have to go over the red lines once or twice more. That red is not quite as opaque as I’d like it to be.

In other news, the basement is once again cleared of people, so I can finally get back to working at night, without having to worry about waking people up. Productivity will soar!

See, now this dealie is starting to take shape. It’s got a pretty flower and everything.

Here is a background I have randomly painted. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to paint on top of it, but I’ll think of something.

Molecule Day 2 Wed, 11 Nov 2009 04:40:39 +0000 Laurel Green IMG_0441

I work a bit more on my painting and my phototakery skills (without actually reading the manual yet, derp), and I think that this photo is much better than the previous one. I just need to unlock the secrets of focusing and the world shall be mine. Bwahahahaha.

Molecule Day 1 Tue, 10 Nov 2009 02:44:44 +0000 Laurel Green IMG_0425

This is a small part of a painting I’m doing. I need to reread my camera’s manual, to find out how to fix the flash, so that it doesn’t reflect so much. The next picture will be better.

Colour and Texture Test

I picked up some texture mediums on a trip through the US and this is me testing them out.

By the by, if anyone has a large format scanner they don’t need anymore, I could haul it away for you, maybe?

Drippy Flower

My mother said that this one looked too “South Western”. I’m not sure what she meant by that.

Poiky Snircles

I was exploring the dynamic interplay of poikiness and snircles with this painting.
