Day studies

the goal was to learn values and then do values in one color only making tints and shades to make the darks and lights of the piece. I decided to do basic items with odd shapes to try and mater difficult angles.


The assignment was to select an artist you wished to use as inspiration, I picked my own palette and i couldn't decide on one artist to model my art after. I decided to go with a realist and a abstract painter. I liked their individual style and decided to make my own mark. The main idea was to take a subject and paint them in a way that represented them as a person. I selected two popular poses of my friend, Deveney. I am satisfied with the way it turned out and all the different values are to my taste, however I would like to go back in and sharpen certain aspects.
