some plants from around my apartment! :o

I forgot how much doing studies makes you start noticing all the colors and light on everyday objects - everything looks amazing!!

Some odd and ends, pencil studies and illustration class hw from the last year!

 The prompts for the illustrations were “The difference between ‘pricey’ and ‘priceless,’” and “Balancing two different ideas with ease.” Also, a mascot redesign (Mr. Owl), Facebook stickers for the theme “alien”, and a little guy who was a handmade book in real life, but a gif here.

A watercolor from last spring, lunch hour plein airs from this summer at Blue Sky Studios, and recent digital photo and master studies! Lately I’ve been trying to focus on making conscious decisions about what details of the photo I should use, and what could help the picture as a whole by being left out as simpler blanker space.

art,More tree painting practice, and here’s how much I cheat in PS to get nice colors! auto-tone+color balance+curves+overlay.

I feel guilty about not forcing myself to learn to do this naturally, but it’s not at the top of my ‘horrible-faults-I-need-to-improve-asap’ list right now.
