I stopped by Griffith Park today for a bit of painting upkeep. I’ve been drawing a ton of peple in pencil (which is amazing!) buttt if I’m not careful I’ll loose the color knowledge I worked my ass off for. It seems like the more I continue to grow as an artist the more of a juggle it becomes to remain proficient at my acquired skills. Oh well, here is a phone sketch of two scenes at the park today and a location picture.
Man I’ve been busy. I literally get back home from work famished and exhausted and tired and making run on sentences. I’m not entirely sure why but I konk out around 10pm nowadays ( not good). Anyways, IT’S A NEW YEAR!! meaning new goals and chances to improve at this thing. Man it’s crazy how fast time is flying these days. It’s like I started this blog “about a week agooooooo” but it’ actually been years at this point. Hmph. Well last night I stayed awake long enough to attend a figure drawing session at CSG. I’ve noticed some solid improvements in my work since I started regularly attending sessions so I hope to continue as this year goes on.
I pretty much just regergitated my last sunset phone painting. The thought process was doing a focused scene with no reference based on colors I remember so here you go. I’ll be putting down some more involved work soon causeeeeeeeeee I’m starting a new short film!!! Ayyyyyy (now I’ll go from antisocial to being a ghost…wooooooo).
Sad times guys, I’m nearing the end of my lease for the first apt I’ve ever had in California. I stayed in Sherman Oaks for 3 months but now it’s time to make the move ( and commute) to West Hollywood. You can find me amongst the stars from now on hahaha. Oh yeah, this is another phone painting of something mundane and lackluster.
