These last two paintings took me the longest to do because I put so much detail into them. First I will show you the whole painting, then the details so you can better see what all is in them.
For this first painting the assignment was to paint a surrealist painting, so I decided to do a seascape where the birds were swimming, and the fish were flying, with a few other backwards details thrown in for good measure.
Such as an octopus climbing a tree and seahorses hanging like bats.
And flying penguins. :)
I also did a forest of sharks. :)
For the birds, I did cardinals in coral,
Along with Canada Geese and Ostriches
And probably my favorite part, a Barn Owl. :)
Our final painting was to be based on a famous painting, but we were to give it a modern twist. I chose “A Sunday on La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat.
And for my “Modern Twist, I made it into a parody of the Apple Advertisements that have a silhouette against a solid colored background, with almost no other detail besides the iPod and ear buds.
As you can see I added some iPads as well.
I moved all the animals so that I could paint them better. It’s difficult to show two silhouettes if one is in front of another.
I remedied that here though.
And that concludes my paintings from last semester. Hopefully I’ll get this semester’s up a bit sooner… :)
