While interning I've been fortunate enough to have some time to work on some personal pieces at James' studio. I approached these pieces much differently than I would a normal assignment, mostly because I didn't do any preliminary sketches which left room for exploration. The work changed a lot when I was working on it as I would paint over parts completely, glaze areas back, and switch mediums. I got some great critiques and feel like I learned a lot about making an image thanks to the generous input of James. Here's the first piece and I'll be posting the others in installments to try and get back in the habit of posting regularly. I would love to hear some feedback!
