Speed metal

Whee, metal! More watercolor class assignments. I ended up having to paint all three of these in one day, back-to-back and super fast. Well, fast for me anyway. Thankfully I’d done all the preliminary drawing the night before or I wouldn’t have made the deadline.


Copper pot the first:


And now I indulge my newfound love of detail shots. Can you tell this painting is my favorite of the three? I had fun with the various spattering and salt techniques I used on this one.

And a dull silver metal.

This one was definitely the most rushed of the three, I even tore the paper in my hurry to remove the masking tape.

Other metal paintings, in acrylics. Hey look, it’s the same copper pot! Was interesting to do the same subject in a different medium – much more planning ahead required with watercolors.

face parts

Studies of various facial features in oil. The eyes were definitely my favorite, though the ears were sorta fun too.
