Palette knife painting

Painting with the palette knife definitely created some challenges for me. However, it made the painting fun because it reminded me of icing a cake. What frustrated me the most was the shoe laces and making them look realistic and not blend in with the shoe. I overcame the frustration by concentrating on the light and the red that reflected in the shoe. I would definitely use the pallet knife again because it made it easier to simplify and it was fun to paint with. My thinking while using the palette knife was more simplified

Glass of water

For my tall glass of water oil painting I considered the size, view, placement. I put the glass towards the middle of the painting but i was sitting at an angle which made the view point interesting. I really thought of the water as shapes of dark and light colors. I also created a sense of transparency. My ellipses and and viewpoints are correct and consistent. My paint colors are very much clean and clear. I completed the painting in the allotted time because i didn't get distracted and was very focused at all times. The object that I chose reflects that I like music.

Joy Series

My joy series is about the feeling of being in the air. I did gymnastics for 11 years and there is nothing like the feeling of flipping in the air.
