San Francisco Cityscapes

We had a landscape/cityscape assignment in my composition class. I tried focusing on the designed and geometric aspect of the city, playing up the repetitive and primitive shapes found in our neighborhood and cities elsewhere. Had a lot of fun with these, and it is a revelation to truly understand the importance of composition.

Tried out a square canvas for the first time. My intent for this one was for the eye to move around as much as possible, not creating too strong of an area of emphasis anywhere.

In this one I was playing more with the use of color contrast as a means to lead the eye into a strong area of emphasis, which you hopefully find to be around the person with the umbrella. Again without the eye getting to stuck.

Did a portrait of a couple of classmates. Should have spent a bit more time on the composition, there are a few tight spots here and there. Pretty happy with these though, it was fun to get to spend some time focusing on a face with my brushes. At least they recognized themselves!

Then another in-class painting, been trying hard lately to gain enough experience so as to go ahead and loosen up my brushwork. Thicker paint, and more confident color handling. Have a few happy moments now and again, and felt like I succeeded fairly well in this one

Digital Environment

Night scene for my digital class. Ended up learning a lot about night lighting, could probably have pushed more blue into the piece. Pretty sloppy linework on this one, really got to work on my sketchbook skills.
