Because it’s summer break, I had plenty of time to do a real, full-on painting. I had wanted to draw this view from a window in the Huntington Library tea cafe for a while, so I thought it would be a good time to do so.
I personally don’t enjoy drawing manmade objects because I’m pretty bad at drawing straight lines and perfect curves, so this was quite a challenge for me. However, I think it turned out pretty well!
Now that it’s finally summer break, I can get to painting the things I’d wanted to (look out for those posts in the future!) and also actually post things on this poorly abandoned blog! I’d managed to do some gesture drawing during winter break and on the weekends, so here’s a little collection of them:
Hope to see you more in the future!
My first semester of college is now over, and it’s now Christmas! This year’s Christmas picture shows the drive home for Christmas. I think it’ll go well with the song “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”.
I drew the background with pastels, but I wasn’t satisfied with the saturation, so I added the other features with Photoshop using my tablet. I think it went quite well!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Since a lot has changed since my last post, I thought I’d give a little overview of what’s happened.
- I finally moved from Singapore to California! After living in Singapore for so long, it was a bit sad leaving, but now I’m in California!
- I met my grandparents in Korea and gave them a couple of my acrylic paintings that I posted here.
- And I’ve started college!
I’m taking one design course, which is good because I’m awful at making posters and designs, and I really enjoy it! Here’s one of my projects on color:
I’m really getting the hang of acrylic paintings! Here’s another one that I did. It’s meant to be humans in the forest. It’s a change from my usual illustrative style.
Also, some important news: I’m moving to the US to start college! I’m kind of happy (and nervous, and excited, and scared?) to finally be returning to the US!
Hi, everyone! After finishing my last cliff painting in acrylic, I decided to do another acrylic painting, this time of a more complex flora landscape. Here it is!
I didn’t take as many progress photos for this one, so I hope you enjoy the final piece 🙂 It is based slightly on Rousseau’s paintings.
Today, I’m going to show you one of my recent paintings of the 12 Apostles near Melbourne (click the link to read more about it.) I went to Melbourne last December, and this painting is drawn from one of my photos that I took there. I haven’t done much acrylic painting, and the ones that I have done don’t really satisfy me. However, I believe that this one is much better!
This is the final piece:
And these are the progress photos:
I think it turned out quite well!
