A stormy evening sky in Minneapolis, end of May, 2017
This week we were set to do a skyline, most of the class wanted to do one of Minneapolis. While a few of us looked and found possibles, the teacher came in with something completely different, a very colourful, stylized skyline, which we were to emulate.
My first thoughts went to the painting “Morning Cyclist” by Fealing LIn, which we’d copied some time ago, and I thoroughly enjoyed. I decided to make mine in a similar fashion.
Last week in class, we went back to one of my favourite things to pain: Flowers! This time we had a very pale pink rose that had a nice yellow glow from the center, and a deep, dark background.
New pen and ink arrived from Goulet Pens:
- TWSBI Diamond 580 Demonstrator
- Rob’t Oster Fire and Ice sample vial
- Rob’t Oster Gold Antiqua vial
- Rob’t Oster Astorquiza Rot
We started this portrait in class today, the niece of a friend of our teacher, sitting on the couch reading.
