Last Thursday in my class, the teacher gave each of us a piece of 300-lb. paper. Really nice stuff. She told us to, in class, make a beach scene that incorporated the following elements: sand, rocks, trees, grass, a stormy sky, a lighthouse, and a lightkeeper's cottage. I did mine wet-on-wet, really, really loose and tried to avoid getting bogged down in details like I normally do. I did I did a fairly good job. I mean, it has lots of problems, but I'm happy with it.

The other girl in my class didn't know what a lighthouse looked like, and then the poor thing literally spent about an hour sketching out what she was going to paint. We kept telling her to just take the brush and start painting, it was okay, it wasn't for a grade or anything, but she was almost in tears because she "can't do that." She's a really sweet person. Anyway, I had mine almost done before she started painting. It's a really fun class, I'm sad that this week is our last class.

ART STUFF YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Sorry for the crappy picture quality and glare on the frog painting.

Here is my frog! I call him Crunchy.

I didn't feel like the photo showed his eye to its best advantage, so here is a scan of it:

And in class today, I did a little wet-on-wet experiment and tried to keep it fairly spontaneous, so here's my Geisha:

This week's [livejournal.com profile] arteests challenge was to create two tarot cards.

They might be a little late, but I only just finished. Went with a Native American theme. Because I felt like it, that's why.

This week's [livejournal.com profile] arteests challenge was a self portrait.

The painting (made with watercolor pencils and a bunch of spatter from a toothbrush, because I was bein' silly) doesn't really look much like me, so I included the sketch, which kinda DOES look like me...well, moreso than the painting, at any rate. They are both very tiny and I'm not sure why, since they weren't that small when I scanned them. Weirdness.
