30 in 30 – Eff It – Fruit

30 in 30 – Eff It – Fruit

Wow!!! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a video! I got out of habit and couldn’t find the time to get it back going! I’ve been slowly working on that and figured I’d start off and get to posting with something small.

I ventured into a 30 in 30 Daily Painting Challenge. Fast forward to Mardi Gras, getting spontaneously hired to work on stage sets for the balls during Mardi Gras and then a dear friend came in town suddenly…. this whole challenge was a complete bust for me.

I am going to push myself to continue to try and get 30 in 30 done again starting in March but all bets are off on if I’ll be able to complete it.

Having recently moved into a studio space, I’ve put myself out there in the art community as well as in the local community. I’m feeling the love of all the great artists around me and with that have come several opportunities that are pushing me to work outside of my comfort zone and move in ways I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.

I hope you enjoy the little quick videos of these daily paintings. Please let me know what you think in the comments!

Azalea – Paintings 2017

Azalea – Paintings 2017

My hometown is nicknamed the Azalea city! So, I adventured out to take some floral photos and came across these gorgeous Azaleas! In this video, I paint one and give you a commentary on my process. I’m new at this sort of thing, so please go easy on me! I slip up in places and mispronounce a couple things but hey, that’s life! If you like the voice over, please let me know in the comments below! And don’t forget to subscribe and leave a like!!

 

Alabama Pitcher Plant ~ Paintings 2017

Alabama Pitcher Plant ~ Paintings 2017

I tasked myself to knock out a painting for the upcoming Baykeepers annual Art of the Bay show at The Mobile Arts Council in Mobile, AL. We were given a variety of things to choose from relating to the Mobile Bay Watershed. I chose the Alabama Pitcher Plant! What a phenomenal piece of nature. I really enjoyed painting these and studying them. The detailing was taxing at time but well worth the end result. I’m happy that I decided to film the painting of it as I think it’s fun to watch. I hope you also find it fun and interesting to watch! Thanks for looking!

No. 24 – Sketches 2017

No. 24 – Sketches 2017

This was a fun project that I did the a local Fundraiser called Flow Initiative. I intended to do an oil painting of this image however, due to time restraints and deadlines, I opted for a charcoal drawing. And I really like the end result. I love the textures given off from the wood and have found myself inspired to do more drawings on wood panels. The skateboard was primed with 3 layers of Acrylic Gesso, sanded in between and after final. Then once the drawing was completed, the entire surface of the drawing was covered in 2 layers of polyurethane. I put this video together for some fun and I hope you enjoy it!

No. 23 – Commissioned Portrait – Sketches 2017

No. 23 – Commissioned Portrait – Sketches 2017

I was commissioned to sketch a portrait of a friend’s mother from a single photograph she provided. I don’t normally like to draw teeth or smiles but I took on the challenge and I’m so happy with the end result and the client was as well. I was asked to just “do my thing” and sketch her however I’d like (which I have to say is pretty awesome). I wanted to maintain most of the integrity of the image and honor her mother’s memory but also make it a unique drawing with some sketching flair. I’m so pleased with the end result! Thanks for watching!
