Fiona


And here is the somewhat finished painting. I wanted to go way more abstract. Next time... next time. On a side note... I've been listening to Drukqs on repeat all day.. The double album by Aphex Twin. I think it may be driving me slightly insane.

Fiona


Blasting music and painting today.. This is a start. About 2 hours in and I think I'll work on this one for a few more days. Portrait of Fiona Apple.

Between the Bars.


I'm trying to go with a theme of sorts. Not too complicated. I'm painting artists/musicians with wings. So far I've only done two of Elliott Smith. This one is on paper with pencil and watercolour.
Not sure who's next but I'm loving the challenge of sketching people. The next one might be on canvas... I want to go bigger and better. I think I'll do a female... Someone with an interesting look.

Waltz #1



This is a watercolour and acrylic that I did while listening to Elliott Smith's XO album. One of my favorite albums of all time. I titled this painting after one of his songs, Waltz #1

Todays Sketch.


I spent most of the day inside. I've been interested in portrait art again lately. I want to do a series of figures.. This is just a self portrait sketch in front of the mirror for practice. Watercolour and pencil.

New work


This one is from a trip out to Beacon Hill Park. The watercolour turned out darker than I wanted it to but the clouds were fun to do.

Time out

I have a few art openings coming up. One is an open house at my art school on the corner of Quadra and Kings. The show is today (Saturday 1-4 pm). The other is in Fairfeild.. I think it's the Community Centre. That will be next week. I've taken a break from art since the end of my course but plan on posting more watercolours and random sketches soon.

I have a blog?


I have a blog. I don't remember setting this up but I'm glad to rediscover it. This is my latest watercolor.. I'm starting another one tonight and will be posting its progress.
