Weird Watercolors

I don't have time to be posting this blog!  But oh well here are some watercolors from last night's Figure Drawing Class at Studio b:

So on this one (above) I painted the watercolor first, decided it was wrong, and then tried to save it by adding pen on top.  The watercolor was already off enough that the pen mostly followed the mistakes.  However, it was pointed out to me that this looks purposeful!  Now it looks kind of cartoon-ish.

So then I decided I'm more of a draftsman than a painter so I'd better draw it in pencil first.  Much better.  I was liking this one but unfortunately time ran out (15 minutes) before I had a good chance to muck it up.

And then he held a big frame.

Well, that's all I've got to share since I'm still working hard on my top-secret commission.  Aren't you just so curious???

Welcome to My New Studio

That's right, folks.  I now have a FOR REALS studio.  No more working in the tiny corner of the bedroom with my art and supplies stored all over the house and shed.  A real life studio... How do you ask?  WE BOUGHT A HOUSE.  How the Hell do an artist and a coffee roaster afford to do THAT, you ask?  Because my parents are AWESOME and they helped us out with the down payment.  And this perfect little house just so happened to have a perfect separate building in the back yard just perfect for an art studio.

Welcome to my studio...

But beware... For it is guarded by a fierce cat and dog team.

Some time soon we will be finishing the studio: insulated the walls and ceiling, adding paneling, painting said walls and ceiling, and painting the floor.

So the move is partially why I haven't blogged in a couple weeks.  The other reason is I have been working on a commission but I can't share the progress because it's a secret... Sshh...  But it won't always be so I will share once I can.

And oh yeah!  Here is my final for silkscreen class that I spent forever on, made a silly little mistake, and didn't turn out very well...

And here is the progress on the PC painting...

Well, I really shouldn't be blogging right now because I have a LOT of work to do on the secret commission, so off I go!
