This is in between abstract and scenery, I thought it could go into misc...
OK! No. 1, I of course must appologize for the crappy photo, it distorted the dimensions and washed out the colors a bit, and is just a bad photo in general... I am not a photographer. ^_^;
This is a painting I did for my painting class based off a photo I took of a city road at night. Acrylic on canvas, let's see, maybe 22" by 30" or something like that? Medium-sized. ^_^ This is one full day's work.
Nighttime is my absolute favorite time to be awake, I love the dark and I love the way all the lights on the street shine in the dark. Ideally this would have been a picture of city lights at night in the RAIN, with the lights reflecting in stripes on the wet street, but it hasn't rained recently, so this had to do. ^_^ I will still paint my wet nightscape someday!
I tried to abstract things up a bit, didn't quiiite turn out the way I planned, but I'm fairly pleased with the result. I'm not sure if my teacher was too crazy about it though. The only thing he said to me the entire day was "you know that flares [on the lights] are a photographic convention, and not something you actually see with your eye. Keep that in mind next time." Oh well. >_<
Let's see, what else. Sorry that I haven't been very active with my account, guys. I've been really busy with school work. (but unfortunately nothing that I want to put up here!!!) My classes this semester are quite monotonous and rigorous. This is like the first fun thing I've done since I started, so I just had to show you. My painting classes especially have been really tedious.... for six solid weeks we did nothing but self portraits in a mirror sitting on a chair. I have four damned canvasses now of me looking at myself in a mirror. Hopefully I've improved my painting skills though? Hm?
Hm. I might post the original photo in my scraps section. Maybe.
