paaaaintings

i took some cheap classes at a near by community art center/school thing
so here is the work i came out with...
in addition to the paintings i posted before
those were from the same class
it's not much but it was good experience... now i feel more confident to paint on my own
but motivation is another question >>;

number one is a landscape painted on site... about 4.5 hours, acrylic
this is the charles river



this is a street in front of the school where i took the class... painted on site, about 2 hours.
somehow i feel like it is sending messages of entrapment... i remember purposefully picking an angle where the cars in front blocked the view of the end of the street... plus the do not enter sign and the fences. i must have been in a strange mood. i like the first one better.



and this one... i think i was kind of bored.

  2. yeah it's definitely a good experience to paint from life
    landscape painting is so difficult, it was hard for me to get started
    that's why i took the workshops
    i like works from imagination too, but working from life is the best foundation

    but really it's so much harder to mix a color instead of just using the color picker!! lol
