Landscape Painting from class.

Trying to be more active on this blog so heres a super cropped (instagram) picture of my painting from todays class. Left one is my initial 30 second sketch, right one is at the end of the class. I never do landscapes or anything like this so I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

PART THREE)

Draw one image for this poem:

A minor bird:
I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;

Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.

The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.

And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song.

Ira Glass on not quitting;

I think I've thrown out about 5 or 6 poster designs already, and figured it would probably be a good time to post this since I think it sums up how frustrated I am haha.

SAD WAVES FOR SAD PEOPLE (Working Title).







So this is a project I am working on at the moment- Here are 4 different styles I've done, I like the top one the most. 

Anyway, here's my little spiel on all this. 

In this drawing based project I explore the conflict between the rational mind and the emotional self and how this manifests in artwork. The conflict experienced is represented in the form of illustrated waves that embody the anxieties of self-regulating.
