I am working on a few Christmas art pieces and was struggling to think of a piece that is considered Christmas-y, but also can be enjoyed all year round. THIS is one of the results! Japanese style 12 days of Christmas! I quite like my Japanese heritage, and I know others enjoy Japanese things too. Who doesn’t love origami? …Right? ūüôā

I guess I’ve been on a little nature kick recently since going to the local greenhouse. ¬†Purely because it seemed fun and I wanted to, I painted these little oil studies. Also, I had a great time sketching outdoors on the “Y” mountain. ¬†I did a panoramic sketch of the Utah Valley below. ¬†I do believe it is NOT a waste of time to paint things or draw things just for fun. ¬†In fact, please do! ¬†A LOT! ¬†So that the art you love doesn’t become only a career. ¬†It’s better when it’s a hobby you love too.

So this is how it works: Every Friday we take a class field trip to some wild new location. We bring all our painting materials (I go with oil paints) and a chair and water and lunch and the white kids bring sunscreen, then we set up and paint! It’s pretty marvelous. Being outside painting has to be one of the most fun and peaceful things ever to do, and I really look forward to the rest of this semester! Here are some of my very first landscape paintings I’ve done in the field EVER.

ps – These are still really mediocre

I am FOR SURE going to be better at posting regularly from now on because of what I have been told in my business practices for illustrators class. Here are some 30 minute color studies for my environment painting class. There will be many more of these to come.

During my summer internship with Cliff Nielsen I got this assignment to copy a portrait by the master Spanish¬†artist, Velasquez. My last assignment was to use digital media to copy a painting, but this one was done traditionally with oil paints. It’s amazing how much funI had while learning so much at the same time!

The class assignment was to paint the human head from a black and white photo and add your own colors. ¬†I started off with a gessoed board and sketched the picture on top. Then I just sorta started laying in colors! Here’s some of it and the final piece…
