Aug '04 - May '05
I decided to use my last non-architectural elective by taking a painting class. I'm working on a concept of adaptive use in art. Before I begin reinterpreting the works of others, I'm learning how to paint in oils. Previously my only painting experience was in a watercolor delineation class as a freshman. I've chosen oils as a media because oils will paint over both existing oil and acrylic paintings. My first three pieces will be simple exercises in oil techniques. Here are a few pics. The first is a still life image of some limes. I'm not sure why people paint still life images of fruit. I mean who wants a painting for fruit on their wall. But, that was the assignment. The second is a picture I'll be using for my second exercise.
