_.. .._ ._. ._. .... .._ ._. ._. .... .._ ._. ._.



One watercolor and one gouache piece. This was my first time with gouache and it was honestly pretty neat stuff, nice, forgiving and easy to control. Watercolor and I, on the other hand, have a long and sorted history of not really getting along... I think this is probably the first time I've managed to actually make watercolor do what I want it to... sort of.

Also, I was talking to a friend about how gouache was spelled versus how gouache was pronounced. I wound up breaking it down to "gwash" which eventually we mutated to G-Wash, which is, of course, what you call gangster George Washington.

Then this happened:


The end.

Feathers eyes and teeth

So it's been a little while since I've posted anything. So, in attempt to fix that:

Anyway this was a sculpture for my advanced media class. There are parts of this I'm pleased with, but there are a lot of places where I really feel like I could have done a lot better with a little more time, but it had to be baked and painted for critique so... well, oh well.

These right here are the classy photos Don Brandes took of it, I have some less classy ones I took myself I might post soon of a couple other angles I liked that he didn't shoot from...

Anyway, more soon hopefully.
