These past two weeks we have been cleaning up, photographing and critiquing our impressionist and abstract expressionist paintings. The critiques were alright and I talked a lot because I have a lot to say about everybody's work :). We also photographed our pieces so those should be up soon.
This week our impressionism paintings were due. I am not a big fan of mine because it doesn't feel very impressionist. There is not a lot of emotion or looseness to my mark and the subject matter does not feel impressionist either. I had lots of trouble working with oil paints and I never quite got the hang of them. The impasto I tried didn't work and so overall, I am pretty disappointed in it. On Friday, Stanley came in and he talked to us a little bit about figure drawing, which was pretty cool.
I am an art student at Maggie Walker and this is the place where I talk about what we're making and what we're learning... Through this I can pour out my heart about my artistic experience.
