Frederick Farmhouse by PumpkinJack6
Frederick Farmhouse
This is a watercolor painting of a farm in Frederick, Maryland, that I did as part of a VisArts painting class in Rockville. This might be my most successful watercolor painting. I stayed away from the pre-mixed paint tray even though it had a lot of options since all the colors tended to look the same. Instead I used the tube paints and mixed up the variations myself. That seems to have given the picture more character. I like how most of the colors are subdued but then there's this strong red for the farmhouse roofs to grab your attention.
Le Chat Noir by PumpkinJack6
Le Chat Noir
My rendition of the classic Art Nouveau print, "Le Chat Noir" by Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen. Of course, I've substituted my own tortoiseshell cat, Juno. Done in acrylic on canvas.
Woman With A Parasol by PumpkinJack6
Woman With A Parasol
My rendition of Monet's "Woman with a Parasol". Done in acrylic. This one was a lot of fun to attempt. I feel like I'm gaining a better appreciation of the impressionists as I try to recreate their work. I tried to use a little color vibration with the pink and blue in the woman's dress to give it a sense of complexity more than it really has (got that idea from Stapleton Kearns' blog).
Reclining Man - Sculpture
Here's the second sculpture that I finished in my class at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland. I think the seated lady was a greater success than this one but it was a great learning experience to attempt.
Seated Model - Sculpture by PumpkinJack6
Seated Model - Sculpture
This is the first of two sculptures I finished at a VisArts class in Rockville centering on figurative art. This was completed after three three-hour sessions with a model. The clay was fired for us at VisArts and I just picked it up. I think this one was a success. Mostly, I feel like I captured the model's position and musculature fairly well. The class was a good introduction to the art of sculpting. I'm sure that I'll continue to try figures and faces on my own.
