Water Studies - Homework

Last week's art class homework - water studies: Three different bodies of water painted three different ways. The top painting was done with a brush and palette knife, the middle painting was brush only, and my teacher said I could use anything BUT a paintbrush for my third, so I used my fingers and a palette knife. This is on 16" x 20" loose canvas. Couldn't seem to knock out the camera flash glare on the bottom painting ...

Homework - Still Life

More homework from Emily Carr. This is basically the same as last week's homework (spheres), but our teacher, Lori Goldberg asked me to set up my own still life at home and bring it next class for marks. I thoroughly enjoyed this project, and I'm starting to feel a wee bit more comfortable painting - and that's what I was after all along.
This is on 16" x 20" canvas pad using locally made Kroma Artist Acrylic paints.
