Art, Drawing + Painting

February 24th – A Painting Time Lapse

It’s a Monday afternoon. I’ve been trying my hardest to stay in a productive art groove, collaging and sketching every day and doing some observational drawings when all else fails. But this afternoon my internship supervising teacher (who is awesome) gave me the encouragement to go after what I really want to do. The problem is: I don’t know what that is anymore. I know I want to travel. I know I want to make things.

She looks through some miniature landscapes I did back in high school and early college that I stopped working on when I started focusing on other things and other people. I’m trying to get back into those too. She says people would want them, or any other things I make. I say no one does. She says they do, they just don’t know they want them yet. I think this is hilarious, but not entirely inaccurate. Definitely motivating.

So this Monday afternoon I’m painting. I haven’t really used acrylic paint in a couple of years. It feels nice to be messy.

Just thought I’d share that with you. Here’s a (very short) time lapse of a one hour study.
