I have finally done something related to my major!

Background paintings :)

I started painting this in the evening and stayed up all night (ok I did fall asleep for 1-2 hours, hmm... I guess that doesn't count as "stay up"), after doing just... one thumbnail, I think it does make a different when you already have your mind set at something. That was how I felt when I first came up with the concept. I think I want paint another piece depicting a land flowing with milk and honey - the Promised Land from the Bible, next. That place sounds delicious.

Finally a painting I started almost a year ago in landscape 1. Tomutsu was right about the umber everywhere in my painting. So one day I just took a palette knife and went all over the painting. This is the result:

veeeeeryyy nice Carmen, these are awesome, your improvement is really impressive :) And I remember that last one, I don't really remember what it looked like b4 but the finish looks good :) What class did you do the bg paintings for? Looks like fun

no way! haha did you grow up in toronto? i went to unionville high school, maybe you've heard of it? wow, it really is a small world..

and you're very welcome! good work deserves good praise. :>
also, thanks for the compliment in return haha i'm aspiring to use colour differently. it's so hard. a lot of my older pieces are completely monotoned.
