Quick paintings

For Landscape and Situation and Environment classes, we’re doing a ton of fast, small paintings from Academy-supplied reference. Most of these haven’t been worth putting up, but here are a couple that I think turned out OK, given the complexity of the reference photos and the time limitations we had to work within. Both are 11″x14″ on canvas – oils, of course.

Still Life showing focal point through edge control

I’m not sure how successful this one is for the assignment it’s supposed to address, but I kind of like it anyway. I was under the gun to finish it, so I didn’t tone down the colors, but applied them full-strength. I know many people like the really bright colors, but I’m really and genuinely starting to prefer more muted tones. Oh well – this one would work in someone’s contemporarily-styled kitchen, I suppose! 20″ x 16″, oil on canvas.

Still Life in Interior

This one is 20″x16″ on canvas (woo-hoo! Not on canvasboard! I’m movin’ on up, to THE sky!)

Interior Subject: “Unusual Suspects”

The assignment is to do a “found” interior still life of something mundane – something you wouldn’t normally think to paint. I give you – my kitchen sink. Aside from some perspective issues, I kind of like it, I guess. Oil on canvasboard, 14″ x 11″.
