This little boy I painted the other day.  I think small children playing or doing what they do are the cutest.  This is day 29 or the 30 day challenge.  I didn’t quite make the 30 painting.  This is done in acrylics I used Ultramarine Blue, Grumbacher Red, Cad Yellow Medium, Titanium White, Hooker’s green  and Mars Black

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway…let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”

Projects at school are keeping me busy.  Most of them are 18 x 24 and taking a lot longer to paint than the 6 x 6.  The Recent painting is called Medusa’s Curse.

The colors used in this one are Magenta, Hooker‘s Green,Burnt Umber, Titanium White and Mars Black.  The Figure is done using modeling paste and  sgraffito to carve in the basket and the other shapes the within paste.

“The television, that insidious beast, that Medusa which freezes a billion people to stone every night, staring fixedly, that Siren which called and sang and promised so much and gave, after all, so little.” ~ Ray Bradbury

Cherry in a cup.  This is one of my next projects for school.  Went to high school birthday reunion and it was fun to see some of the people I graduated with, so now I am rushing to get my homework done.  Got one more picture to do tonight.  So I will probably be up all night.

My palette used to produce this painting is  mars black, titanium white, raw umber, magenta, hookers green and cobalt blue.

This is my first class project. We are to do 6 simple objects, all the same), simple background.  I wanted to do lemons because I am not comfortable doing them, all those pits in the lemon I can’t seem to get the hang of it, I am hoping I get some advice to how to do them.  This was done in acrylics instead of oils since I plan to take it to class tomorrow.  Basically this is an exercise in complementary colors(red/green, yellow/violet, and blue/orange) from the color wheel.  I chose yellow lemons and the shadows are done in violet.  My lemons are a bit dark, that is because I basically like dark and mysterious and because I cut out all the lights to get the shadows I wanted.  I may lighten them up but not sure.  I really like the darkness.

This image is from the Volvo Graveyard in Ohio.  I love Volvos and I thought this would make a great image.  This is done in oils and I am using White Titanium, French ultramarine, Yellow Ochre, Permanent Alizar in Crimson, and ivory black.  I would say that I feel I am starting to get the hang of the oils especially the blending.

Back then the cars had a trap door that we could pull open with a chain to check our tire wear.  ~Tim Flock
