Right now I am sitting in my studio taking a short break from painting. The semester is coming to an end but because of all of the interruptions to my work and the work of my classmates, we all have a lot of of work to get done by the twenty first.
Right now I am waiting for a layer of paint to dry before I can hopefully finish this last assignment for advertising illustration. Then I have two very large two-page spreads to work on for book illustration class. In addition, I have final projects to wrap up in three independent studies. The one nice thing about independent studies is that I can set my own deadlines. Still, I will be working up until the very end.
I wanted to write this blog post as a general checking-in update, since I haven’t had much time lately to update the blog, and as a way of relieving my stress through journaling.
I am painting fire right now and it is really causing me some headaches. This is like my forth attempt on this area of the illustration, but the process has renewed my appreciatiation for tube acrylics.
I hope you enjoy these progress pictures of what I am currently working on.
Okay, that paint is dry. Will post again soon!
