Costume Life Drawing




Costume life drawing at OCADU with Bob Bergers. I decided to experiment a lot in Bob's class to work on my colour and design sense over realistic representation. I really enjoyed Bob's class because he is really big on teaching the design of visual representation. 

With the umbrella lady I mainly focused on trying to paint the light, it was difficult but really fun. Thanks god gouache dries fast haha. I run out of time for rest of the image though. :(

For hat and glasses lady I tried to paint their personality and caricature with colours. Worked on a small surface helps just get the shapes and feeling down. No space or time for details! 


Sargent Master Studies at Studio West

Some master studies from over the past term at Studio West Art from my courses with Keita Morimoto and Peter Chan! Finally scanned everything so now I can post them.

Madam X portrait study, this one was really fun because Peter taught us a new painting process, which is painting on shellac! Shellac is a type of violin varnish that provides a super smooth and orange surface. We paint the rough lines first on gesso board then pour shellac on top of the shellac. Then we paint on top of it. It was really fun to see the contrast between the warm and cool. This study was done with zorn palette! 


I like painting kids... but they always end up looking kinda creepy even in studies. :(
Anyhow did a value study before the coloured one with zorn palette.
I am really happy with those spots of blue :)



Learned load! I have to work on be more confident with my brush stroke, leave it and don't touch it! I keep going over stuffs... Need to work harder! Practice, practice, practice!!!

Environment concept class at OCADU taught by Milan Schere!
I've been always have trouble with digital painting... especially with environment. I realized I enjoy doing thumbnails the most than actual rendering haha. I learned a lot from this course, still have to push my atmosphere, perspective and contrasts more! Something to be work on over the summer for sure!
