So yesterday i had the photo shoot for one of my at home pieces. I am doing an Art Assignment called "conjure your own studio" I think. So i brought my art stuff into the woods behind my house. I am going to do this as a pen and ink drawing I think. I recently got a jar of black ink from a friend, so I think I might include some washes, especially as a basis for the background because i think its cool. I'm not sure what type of paper I am going to use, either watercolor paper for if I actually want to do a wash, or just paper from a sketchbook that i have that I usually use for my ink work. Overall i am excited for this painting.
This week i did more detailed planning for my piece(including making a pinterest board to get some vibe inspirations and some reference photos for things that i can't take myself). Then I gridded my painting(16"x20") and painted it with a vermillion coat to establish a nice base. I am probably going to work on this over the weekend, so will hit you w/some new updates next week. It is looking good right now. i think im gonna get rid of the crown thing cuz it was awkward when I drew it on idk. also im still working with the positioning of the moth because all of the pictures i can find of Death's Head Moths are just straight on of their back, which is really awkward for my composition. I will figure it out eventually though.
Idk how I am going to format so im not putting it in my gallery yet.
Where are you going, Summer 2020 acrylic on canvas, 11x14 for the three and then 8x10 for the other one
Below is more stuff that i made that aren't necessarily part of my summer assignment.
I am a sleep deprived artist trying to make ends meet. :)
