I was doing some organizing the other day, and made a bunch of progress GIFS of various pieces that I had saved a bunch of WIPS for. Here’s a couple. :)

Sometimes I wonder how many different portraits it would take to truly capture a person. Hundreds? Or would it still not even be possible? One of my greatest artistic frustrations is that I’ll never be able to draw how other people feel inside their heads. So, here’s something from the inside of mine. One of the many portraits that could be painted of me. Dedicated to fear, defiance, beauty, and one of my favourite song lines:
“And you punched out all the windows, and the wind began to wail. And you gathered your hair behind your head, like God was gonna catch you by the ponytail…”
And a GIF of the process:
My brain doesn’t like to function after I get off of work. So today, instead of putting my head down on my desk and blanking out, I painted this to give it a rest (also ice practice!). Based on a rad picture of Lake Baikal, which is basically the coolest place ever for ice reference.
Also clouds, because it’s too easy to gloss over them whilst painting:
Finished this up tonight. Hooray, I can work 9 hours and still manage to do art in the same day! Also I finished a piece! I’m evolving!
