Three Hundred and Sixty!

I’ve been looking at windows recently, particularly those of old warehouses near my work. They always seem interesting at night/early morning because they are illuminated but not evenly. They are aged and show wear. Even the color that emits though the panes of glass changes from panel to panel. The whole image has nice a quiet vibe to it. It’s not nearly as dark as it should be but that is somewhat hard for me still. I’ll get there eventually. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Nine!

Now this is an image that has been slowly in progress for a while. I struggled towards the end and really feel that the upper left is incomplete but at this point I’m going to call it and if in the future I decide I want to tackle the image again I will. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Eight!

Tackled this again, I wanted to integrate it into an image with multiple panels. I know it is very similar to the others but none are the same. Some of the color combos within this image are really inspiring. I am looking forward to utilizing them in future works. When I work with watercolors I always find it hard to make certain colors but these type of images are opening up more and more colors every time. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Seven!

Easter is right around the corner and with it comes Easter Eggs! The simplicity of this image is nice. The light washes on the egg really work well with the contrast of high impact color in the back ground. The background of this image is one of my favorites. It’s refreshing painting in this fashion and without boundaries or rules. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Six!

Another doodle from traveling. I have had a little obsession with the diamond shape, particularly when it’s in a series. They keep showing up unexpectedly. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Five!

A quick sketch I did while at the airport in Indiana. Like I stated before not up to par but it was kind of hard to get into the right mode when traveling. I found line work was the easiest thing to focus on due to its repetitive nature. Repetition can be calming which as we know is always useful when traveling! I must admit the trip to and from was easy peasy and Indianapolis Airport is a breeze compared to Logan! The airplane was the smallest I had flown on and luckily rather empty. I never had to sit uncomfortably next to the heavy breather or the person who smelled a little too strongly of garlic, YAY! Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Fifty-Four!

This is a sketch was drawn for a painting I painted when I got home from Indiana. The image does not look the same at all but you obviously see the concept, Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs. I kind of liked doing this image because there was not a weight on my shoulders like the paintings carry. Initially drawn in pencil then finished with pen, there was room for error. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Three!

While in Indiana, I was just working when I was able to which should have absolutely been more often but unfortunately I came down with a bug for almost my entire trip. I did manage to draw/paint a few images literally pulling inspiration from anything around me! As you can see this contains a lot of fruit inspired by a fruit bowl non-the-less. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-Two!

Doodles from Indiana. Went to good old Indiana to visit one of my besties and her new little baby aka. Cricket. Was not exactly in my routine but I was required to produce something during my time there since the trip happened so close to the deadline! Needless to say the image is not exactly to my typical standards but what are you gonna do? It’s fun and whimsical and that is enough for me. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifty-One!

This started out as a doodle and progressed into a painting of sorts. These strange honeycomb like objects seemed to just connect to each other to form some abstract shape. I was not going for a beehive or anything even remotely close. I enjoy the heavy line work at the bottom which lightens towards the top. I would like to explore this imagery in a more planned out image as it seemed to get muddy here. Enjoy and see you next time!
