Cone, Pear and Stand – Painting Exercise #14

Jug, Apple and Cylinder – Painting Exercise #13

Pear, Cylinder and Pot – Painting Exercise #12

Vase and Tape – Painting Exercise #10

I’m now halfway through Block 1 of the Evolve Artist course! I just finished painting #10, which is this vase and tape. The subjects aren’t too exciting, but the point is not to make pretty […]

Mushroom and Cone – Painting Exercise #9

Here’s another painting finished for Block 1 of the Evolve Artist course. This one was a bit trickier, with gradients in some tight spaces. Each exercise has been slightly more challenging than the last, but […]

Sphere – Painting Exercise #5

I just finished another assignment for the art course I’m doing. This is exercise five from Block 1, and is a simple greyscale sphere. It’s painted in oil on canvas, and it’s safe to say […]

Inktober – Doing it My (Very Rough) Way

Inktober is a month-long drawing challenge that takes place in October each year. The idea is to develop an ink drawing habit, but beyond that the rules are pretty loose. I’ve always enjoyed seeing what […]
