Hello everyone. Can I please just start off by saying that I cannot believe it is already day 6? I feel like I’ve written two blog posts. So, that being said, I think I should become more invested in this entire process… Maybe get a little more creative.
So far I’ve done your basic blog posts. No pictures, no ooh-la-la extra frilly stuff. Well, get excited because today, March 6, 2014, you all are going to see a picture.
For my AP studio art class we have to create 12 concentration pieces. That means that I have to make 12 pieces that all kind of go together and all use the same-ish materials. I paint. And, not to offend the acrylic gods, I do not care for acrylic paint. My painting style is slightly more pricier than acrylic because my medium of choice has always been oils. They don’t dry for at least few days which is perfect for me since I do the majority of my painting in school and leave the paint and my unfinished projects there overnight. I also choose to paint on wood. No, not like tree stumps you find in the backyard. Instead I prefer beautiful, sanded-down pine wood. It’s smoother than the canvas and gives the painting a softer texture which I love.
For my concentration, therefore, I am working with oil paint and wood. For what is actually going on to this wood with the oil paint, I have decided on portraiture. At first, that was it. I was going to do portraiture. However, my art teacher told me I was a cop-out and to pick something more interesting so after much thought and research I have decided on medieval portraiture with some modern day elements incorporated into the pieces.
Without further ado here is the latest piece that I have done that I just happened to finish today. If you read my blog post from yesterday, hopefully you will see that my model’s boob is most definitely not attached to her shoulder as it was just the other day.
Peace out till tomorrow fellow slicers!
