Another abstract experimentation

Lying down pose. Using black & white acrylic paint and a palate knife.

Abstract painting

This is the biggest painting I've ever done! Its over five feet tall! Anatomically its not accurate but I'm still proud of it!

Lighting in life drawing

I was aiming for a kind of subtle atmosphere in this piece. The lighting was very strong and the model seemed kind of sad and lonely holding the teddy. I tried to capture some mood.

vibrant colour life drawing

Life drawing is an essential element to the animation course I'm studying in. This year is a year to be more experimental with media, composition and colour and there is less focus on getting the anatomy perfect because we've been working on that for 3years. In this piece I tried to be bolder with my colour palate.

Time to Blog!

Totally new to this whole 'blogging' business. Hoping to meet some people, see some art, learn some art related things, get some feedback on my work, that sort of thing. Im in my fourth year (of five) in The Irish School of Animation in Ballyfermot. Making my film this year and hoping to be finished pre-production very soon. Thats keeping me and my team pretty busy at the moment.
