April 30, 2017 – Completed Art Projects!

April 30, 2017 at 7:51 pm (acrylic painting, Art, Markers, painting) (, , , , , )

I’ve finally gotten around to finishing (and starting) some of my art projects this weekend! The first one to display is a Van Gogh reproduction I’ve been working on (on and off) for a while: Wheat Field with Cypress. I used alcohol-based marker on smooth bristol, and it was my first actual piece using markerĀ (outside of a couple tests).

Next, I finished a painting I had started a while ago and gave up on. I essentially went back and brought it up to a spot where I didn’t want to touch it anymore; I’m not happy with it either way, but it’s in a state of completion now. Acrylic on canvas.

Lastly, I started and finished a painting that I’m a little on the fence on. I like some elements of it, but I don’t know how I feel overall. I likely could have done a bit better on the composition of it as well as the detail work in some areas. Acrylic on canvas.

Painting: Five Birch Trees

I’ve finally gotten some time to paint again. I ended up psyching myself out and getting frustrated with a couple paintings several months ago, and never really made it back. I decided to ease into it with a very small 5″ by 7″ masonite board piece. I only spent a short while on it, but I wanted to get the feel for painting again. Here’s what I came up with:

Autumn Birch Trees

I recently completed a larger painting of a photo I found online (free license). I finished half of it and liked where it was going, but I’m not really happy with how it ended up. It’s acrylic on 9″x12″ canvas.

Salt and Pepper

I recently cleared out some of the stuff I was working on that was taking most of my attention. I wanted to get back into painting but wanted something small and quick to work on. This piece was done on 6″ by 6″ acrylic paper based on a photo I took.

Here’s one of my paintings from last month. I used an existing painting to get a better idea for subject matter. It’s acrylic paint on a 10″ x 10″ canvas.

Bottle Study

Here’s my first attempt at painting a wine bottle (or anything glass). I ended up posting it on an art criticism subreddit and got some great feedback for improvement.
