Teapot and Cup

Something else i have been working on.
It's not finished, but i have been working on it for a while now. Which means I'm moving on, and possibly picking it up at a later date. Like the rest of my stuff.

New things...sort of

So I have decided to post a collection of the stuff I made in the past few weeks.
It's nothing amazing, but it's something.
So here it is.

Oh and also my camera charger.

September 29, 2009

Today nothing eventful happened.

Just a regular day, like any other. I just thought i would post something since I haven't in a while.
Anyway, I've working on some paintings. Well, I'm not sure one can call these "works" more like sketches or exercises. Well, better yet, dicking around.
I just felt I needed to put some paint down on some type of surface, so I figured I'd shellac some box chunks.
I think I'll concentrate on the color and not so much the drawing. Why? Because I can. I need to loosen up and stop concentrating on making something significant. I need to play around.
Well, that will be all. Maybe I'll post what I made. Maybe.

House On Dundas West

I finally have the opportunity to post this first painting completed in Canada.
It was a rather interesting experience having to work in a dimly lit basement from a tiny three inch screen with children constantly inquiring about what it was that I was doing and trying to touch my palette, or should I say the paint on it.

I see there are certain things about the painting that i should have given more thought to, like the bottom part where the sidewalk seems to extend forward, as well as the sides of the entire piece. I should've just left the house be. Looking back at it, it's not very complete after all...
Oh well, next time.

This piece will be the start of a series based on the architecture of various parts of the city. In addition to the Cathedral series I plan on starting, hopefully sometime this week, now that things have somewhat settled.

New Piece

So I finally got my self together enough to start a new painting.
I just started the sketch today and I'm actually pretty excited about it.
It basically continues my body of work in a slightly different direction. I decided to take real life objects/ scenes and use these very directly into the abstract work.
the painting consists of a house in downtown Toronto that caught my eye. I'm going to start with a rather faithful rendition. I will then take certain liberties, as it is customary for an artist to do.
We'll see how it goes.
Pictures to come.

Now From Canada!

So it's been a long time since the last update.
As soon as I get settled I should be posting work ad such other things. In the mean time I suppose I could update with other events such as how awesome Toronto is and how interesting London (Ontario) could be.

Well, more to come.

New Piece

A new piece i started a couple days ago.

In this one i decided to go with a more contemporary look. I suppose it's mainly about the hair. It's still in its beginning stages. The eyes need work since they look cartoon like, the lips a bit droopy and need refinement, and the hair needs more definition on certain areas. It's a good start to a new approach I will be trying for the next couple of pieces.

Bust with Braid

So this piece has been taking a lot longer than originally anticipated. 
I'm almost done with it. 
This is the first bust i've done with, well, bust.

Drawing Machine mark II

A little background:
Freshman year i made a small contraption that made scribbles on paper. I was truly fascinated by this. It was rather basic; pretty much a pen tied to a small electric motor.

Well, I've decided to make a second version of this device. One with a broader range of motion. I have not decided what will determine the motion of the drawing tool, but it will most likely be something that has random movement.

This will serve as a model for something bigger. Well, at least that's the plan.

Faux Finish

This is how the pieces eventually end up looking.
The goal here is to make it look like metal. 

Oh yeah, ignore the Christmas tablecloth.

More Work in Progress

Alright, same deal.
This time though I'm going to give it straight hair. Flowing, maybe it'll go down to the base. Also, I might attempt to put some sort of clothing. Like a low cut ruffly collar thingy. Should be good.
