Ok I know I didn't post anything all week, sorry! I still have those works in progress I mentioned last time, I'm just taking my sweet time on them🙈 Have a repost because I'm being uber lazy and indulging in movies and video games. Her horns and eyes' collage fell off, but I like it this way👍 As soon as midterms are over I'll post (somewhat) regularly again. . . . #surrealism #popsurrealism #surreal #popsurrel #blue #painting #watercolor #inktober #inktober2017 #gouache #trippy #illustration #artwork #artist #aotd #artistsonig #artoftheday #igart #beautifulbizarre #cmartober #conceptualmagazine
This work in progress is going to be so much fun to work on. I know this is a really early shot to show, but it's better than the first layer when everything is so alien-like. Also those mushrooms have eyes👀 . . . #wip #surrealism #popsurrealism #surreal #popsurreal #skull #mushroom #bird #skeleton #longhair #sketch #painting #acrylic #inktober #acrylicpainting #thumbnail #trippy #illustration #dark #drawing #sketchbook #artwork #artist #aotd #artistsonig #artoftheday #igart
I literally have not been able to paint for the past week until today. It feels like having in itch you can't scratch!! I do have many new works in the progress though😄 As soon as they are past their awkward 1st layer stages of course😋 For now, here's a close-up of "Les Lascivieux." #beautifulbizarre
Made a quick painting for class. As i mentioned before it's a collage, so i went for a pop art approach. The photos i chose were oceans. Can any of you find the 2 i cut and pasted? Here's a hint: One photo is the dripping horns. Good luck finding the other ocean photo!
Concept sketch for a new painting coming up! She's got clusters of crystals growing off her (i know they're not that defined 😂)
Close up of "Siren's Melody." She's already been varnished, so photos of her now will come out shiny like this one. I've got a new project to work on that I'm excited to share with you all! It will have some collage elements as well, so I'll be playing around with the different approach 😄 #beautifulbizarre
"Ataraxia" is still one of my favorite pieces that I've ever made. I worked on it for a while thinking I'd scrap it, but I didn't. Classes have started for me now and I hope everyone else going back to school is having fun too! I'll try to stay as active as possible by frequently posting on weekends and Wednesdays when I have no classes. #beautifulbizarre #cmartober #conceptualmagazine
"Frenemies" will be showcased at the College Avenue Galleries in Oakland! The group exhibition is open September 5th-14th. (Sorry for the awakward pic quality. The white background showed up warm on the right from uneven lighting). Time lapse for this will be posted soon! . . . #surrealism #popsurrealism #surreal #popsurreal #painting #acrylicpainting #acrylic #illustration #hummingbird #bird #artwork #artist #aotd #artistsonig #artoftheday #igart #beautifulbizarre #art_daily #heartsofartists #artistscoutz #artists_magazine #beartifully #onyxkawai #its_true_art
Close up of a recent piece I've been working on for an upcoming gallery. I feel like it's missing something😓 We'll see how "Frenemies" turns out. I'll have her time lapse up and running as soon as I have reliable internet again!
So I did the "Cheap" $5 Art Challenge and decided to draw a 1920s Flapper Girl. I thought it'd be cute to go with the theme in the video, here's a sneak peek! I emphasize cheap with quotations since I don't believe in having to splurge on expensive high quality art supplies in order to create high quality art. You can always find your away around with quality art supplies without splurging 😄 Link to this quirky video is in my bio🔼
"Les Lascivieux" is finished!! Waiting on the 18x24in beauty to finish drying before I varnish it. My inspiration for this is rather dark, but that's a whole other story for some other time! The colors are sooo saturated I wonder how it will turn out when the varnish is on. This took me over a month but I really rushed to finish it the past 2 days as it's been sitting around😋 #beautifulbizarre
I'm superrrr excited to see how Les Lascivieux works out. I want to work some more on heart lollipops, the skin especially on the body, her lips, the background..lol basically improve everything! For the most part the birds and face are done though. I've been filming my painting proccess for this the past month I've been working on it!
This is literally what he does every time we go out, so that he can embarass me in public😂 I was planning to do the $5 art challenge and thought I'd film art supply shopping in my favorite art store @flaxart Normally we spend a lot of time in there being weirdos while I indecisvely pick up everything. The link to the full video is up in my bio if you want to see🔼 #flaxart
So today was meant to be varnishing day, but I stupidly rinsed out my varnishing brush already😓 I've never varnished any of my work before, but I love seeing the transformation of it! It's just soooo satisfying watching the @liquitexofficial gloss varnish seal the work! The colors look so much more vibrant and it gives off an overall beautiful gloss/sheen. I swear videos do no justice (probably because of the glare) but they look 10000% better in person😍😍
I finally made something to fill up this pretty baby blue frame! "Meadow's Lullaby" is an 8x10in mixed media ilustration. I might make a small collection of these. Originally I was just playing around with new markers, then I got carried away😸🐦
A new project! I painted the cover of my artist bullet journal :) I was super hesitant about painting over the sleek black cover, but I'm glad I did. Can't wait to seal it with varnish! Time lapse link in bio🔼
