Finally the sun has been showing its bright smile, which in turn makes me smile. With that said, its still freezing here (for what I'm used to anyway) and I can't wait for things to start warming up. With the motivation of the sun calling me out, I've been spending my mornings paintings and afternoons reading in the sun. Here's a few of the paintings I did this week:
Via dell'Alloro - the street that my school is on
I'm going to call it Purange Girl, just because I like word mash-ups. Since I wasn't painting for anyone, I thought I'd try out something new while sticking to a limited palette. I'm pretty happy with the way this one came out.
I'm not even going to attempt to name this one. I was painting Devendra Banhardt and just wasn't satisfied with how I came out, so I thought I'd go as far as I was planning to with go with Purange Girl. I'll admit, its a bit creepy, but I'm still pretty happy with how it came out.
I've also written a new JOpinion on Jotiumitch.com on an amazing oil painter - Kim Cogan. Check it out and let me know what you think.
