hours of copying pasting, stretching, scribbling, layering, layering (layering) photos and old paintings, i finally decided to make...a TREE! wow! how boring. maybe i'll copy this thing over itself on a multiply layer and flip it horizontally and turn it into a veggie burger.

I stared into the sun for a while with my hand positioned in front of it, so that i could look at what it was doing to the hill without blinding myself. i didn't have my paints, but i took notes, and did a painting based off of those notes
(i think this ruined my eyesight)

these are a couple options for the oil painting i am working on, i really like the middle one the best. It's raskolinikov right after he's blacked out for a few days, and he has visitors, that he doesn't want there. anyways, i need to start working on some environments. like whoa.

Alright, just watched pulp fiction, I was noticing interesting highlight light shapes and texture on some heads. I Felt like doing a quick painting before bed... photoshop style. Did this one with value and then added a color layer. I am REALLY bad at using color layer in photoshop( help). Every time I attempt this, it turns out obviously looking like a color layer over value. Gradating the color away on a mask looks really cool... I'll have to remember that.
I haven't touched photoshop or painter for a while because i've been wanting to do some large work with traditional media. I've done a llllitttle bit, But mostly this idea of "keeping it real" has just caused me to produce less. computer=faster. Which doesn't mean I won't keep trying
I recently moved all of my studio stuff out of the breadbox that I call my room. I moved my stuff up... and over we go through the wave and undertoe/I will float until I learn how to swim
... into the attic. LOTS more leg room. lots less clutter.

Sat in on a composition and painting class and did this painting. i think it took 2-3 hours, and i challeneged myself to use only flat shapes and no rendering. i think alot of the shapes are not needed... i get bored and start adding more superfluous shapes. i think a 5 hour sesh spent painting just the biggest shapes would be time well spent.
