16th and Cherry

Classes have started again here in Philadelphia, warmed up with an outside drawing session at 16th and Cherry. The trees there are very nice and have a lot of character, and it’s a welcome break from being cooped up inside classrooms and studios all day.

Some changes

Soon some changes will be happening here hopefully. I have been woefully remiss in updating regularly, as well as changing some things around in the layout of this site.

Starting in the near future there will be regular updates once a week on saturday.

Just a little experiment painting on a wood surface. I picked up a little board that had been dumped in a field by gypsies. Probably came from a house, it was a dark wood and had some kind of protective varnish on it. Brought it home in case I wanted to play around with the oils

Limited Palatte Painting Exercise

 

These last couple weeks have been busy for me, editioning prints, painting, drawing and sculpting for finals. I also caught another cold, which does not help my productivity. For cast drawing our final out of class project involves a self portrait painting using a limited palatte of earth orange, earth blue and titanium or lead white.

Painting is certainly not my strongest point, but I have a good time experimenting with it. Of special interest is application of paint, and I admit I am very fond of painting with palatte knives when allowed.
