Hey a new painting! I painted this from a photo I took a couple blocks from my house here in San Francisco. The light looked really nice.

Some more landscapes. I got the reference photos for the paintings online--no clue where they are but I sure thought they looked good.

Golden Gate Paintings

I started both of these at the park. Worked on each for about an hour but I just can't make a finished-looking painting doing plein air. So I brought 'em home and finished em. I like how they turned out.

This was my first assignment for my last class of college. The assignment was vague--it is a poster of something I care about. It represents thought, or more specifically, a higher level of thought. I think that is important that we all try to have perspective and ignore petty and material things.

These are my final for my advanced persepctive class. I printed the first one on a 20x30 board and the other two were 15x20. I based the artwork on a loose story I had come up with.
Post-apocolyptic tribes are at war and a villian is building a mutant army. Heroes arise and quest to stop him...yadda yadda...

My original title for this was The Strands of Genesh. Strands refers to DNA strands. After being informed that Ganesh is a Hindu god, I think I'll change the title to Kenesh.

These are my three major assignments for landscape painting class.

This was down at the embarcadero. I liked the light and dark shapes, the foggy atmosphere, and the reflections. I like how the painting turned out.
This was sausolito--a photo taken from the ferry to san francisco. I never did figure how to make the structures look like they're integrated with the land and trees.

This was a photo my roommate gave to me to use for my final in the class. It turned out well--probably because it is just classical in nature whereas the sausolito painting I feel was a riskier composition.
These are studies I did in class on location for my landscape painting class.

Did this one down at Tennesse Valley. I like how the crashing water turned out.

Down at some docks. Very limited pallete
This was near the same docks--I like this kind of grungy scenery for painting.

My first attempt at a city painting. I definitely prefer natural landscapes over buildings

This one was fun but again, the buildings are just a chore to paint because of the persepctive and all the straight lines.

Some wine area

Finally posting again at the end of the semester. I was busy painting things like this. This oil clothed figure painting class was a good one. I hope to paint in oils someday instead of digital.

More oil paintings

I managed to do both of these during one class--I think I'm gettin' the hang of it!
