Every year my sister and I do a thing where she sends me a prompt every day during advent and I illustrate it. It’s been our Christmas tradition since 2008.
I was going to put a picture here but I don’t see how? Tumblr is a mystery to me. So just click on the link if illustrations of penguins and monkeys and christmas float your boat (deck your halls?)
The top three are new, the bottom five are a repost - I deleted the old post and retook the pictures because the white balance was so insanely off I couldn’t stand it. #6 and #7 are master studies
Quick sketches from memory of a crazy sunset in Burbank tonight
This week’s studies. On #2, my teacher, Jackson Sze, painted over a bit in the middle, fixing values and stuff, and then I finished. The last four are studies from Edgar Payne paintings. The very last one is painted in casein rather than gouache. All kinds of new things this week!
This week in gouache. Limited palette continues. There are some tangents bugging me in the second to last one. Gotta keep an eye on that out there! #2-5 are from Wisconsin last weekend. Really fun to get out of town and see some different colors than I’m used to!
