Catching Up

April 6, 2009

I’m still working on painting still life.  I followed Jana’s advice and toned down the background on this one, but the camera still makes it brighter than it really is.

I’m also working on anther one – I’ve actually done a bit to it since taking this photo, and I think I’m almost there:

Life drawing hasn’t been going terribly well.  There are times when things flow, and the rest of the time.  I hope this means I’m about to make a breakthrough – that’s usually how I console myself when things aren’t working too well!

Here’s one from each of the last two sessions :

I wish I could find a shortcut to better drawing!

Finally, a quick sketch while out hiking.  I’ve been doing much less sketch lately, and I must make myself start again.  This was done with water soluble crayons.  I didn’t spend much time on it, and I think it shows!

    Hoely moley, your still life is just awesome. I had to look three times to be sure it wasn’t a photo!!

    I love your diversity of media and subjects! I’m intrigued by your still life set up. What is that black box on top of the set up? I can’t wait to see how ths one turns out…I like the overall tone of it!

    I love your oils, Casey. You’re really doing well, especially considering how recently you’ve taken them up. And your hiking sketches are beautifully loose and lovely. Your life drawings are terrific, too!

    Casey, I like your drawings and paintings! There’s poetry in the fluid lines of your drawings. I think the oil painting is working well for you; very impressive!

    Your still-lifes seem more about the light than the object. I aspire to this kind of subtlety.
    Nice work.
