In my Painting I class we focused on looking at colors and noticing how they change with lighting. This was my first time really using oil paint and it is so hard to control the colors from blending into each other. It took several classes to do because if I wanted to change something I had to wait for the paint to dry a little. It’s relaxing but at the same time demanding because you have to work to get clean lines. For this project we used a still life but we will eventually move onto working with a model. I’m looking forward to the challenge because I find working with a model to be difficult. So far I’m enjoying this class because it’s nice to just listen to music and paint.
