Playing with colors and textures today as I enjoy seeing the sunshine out my windows! ONE more week until a much needed break...as I told my students, ‘we love y’all but we ALL need a break from each other!!’🤪 (Title: ‘Quiet Breeze’, 11x14 on a cradled birch panel) “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” ~ Psalms 23:2-3 #middleschoolartteacher#readyforcalm#readyforfamilytime#christmasbreakiscoming#tiredteacher#impastopainting
'Wheat Field with Cypresses', 1889 by Vincent van Gogh. Impasto is a painting term that refers to the use of thickly textured, undiluted, paint that appears almost three-dimensional on the canvas. When an artist uses the impasto technique they usually leave visible brush strokes on the finished painting. They apply the undiluted color to the canvas, frequently with a palette knife, and mix colors on the canvas to attain the desired color. When the painting is viewed from the side the paint is seen sticking out from the canvas in globs. Van Gogh is said to be a pioneer in using the impasto technique. Van Gogh used impasto not just to add dimension to his paintings but to add emotion and movement. We see this movement in the swirling clouds of Wheat Field with Cypresses and Starry Night. The same colors and images could have been created with a traditional painting technique but the movement and emotion of the painting would be missing. Cypresses gained ground in Van Gogh’s work by late June 1889 when he resolved to devote one of his first series in Saint-Rémy to the towering trees. This painting is now present at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York city.

His name is Lion. He was my rivals in every drawing competition I participated in from elementary school to junior high. We once collaborated to paint on a large canvas during opening ceremony of Art Exhibition in City Hall. After graduating from junior high school we lost contact. Few hours ago, I saw a photo in Instagram and I was thought that the guy in the photo is him. So I send a message to the one who posted the photo. I asked her if she has contact address of this guy. And you know what?? My hunch was right. He is indeed my long lost friend. After more than 13 years, Finally I can talk to him again. This is quick watercolor painting of him that I painted during our conversation in WhatsApp. I took reference from his Profile Picture. We plan to meet and painting together in the near future. So excited about it. . #watercolor#watercolour#painting#illustration#drawing#portrait
I’ve found some cool brushes for procreate and wanna try them out! Since I haven’t done any close up portrait on the iPad, I did this so I could try the new skin textures brushes and that shiny-weird details I hopefully learnt doing 😅 Btw I’ve seen some vintage presets for Lightroom and tried them as you’ve noticed on this photo and on the previous post. Hope you like it! ❤️🤙🏻 . . •Drawn on iPad 6th Gen 2018 •App: @procreate •Used: @heymaryjean ‘s brushes . . . [ #athensvoice#portrait#aestheticart#sketch_dailydose #procreate#instartist_ ]
