Tue-Fee's Update: a Holiday Special


(It's not really holiday related apart from being posted on Christmas eve. But I assure you it will give you equally warm and fuzzy feelings as any Christmas song/movie/cookie could)

Painting Critique - Film Head Diptych

So here's the painting from my crit (Friday's class).

I'm not too sure it went over very well. I feel a bit defeated to be honest.

But hey... here it is. I like it, that's what counts sometimes.

Each panel is 4ftx3ft - Acrylic on Canvas  

Fuck Yeah!

Ways of Seeing- The Female Nude

My prof Christine Major sent me this video for my reference, as I am painting a scene from A Clockwork Orange featuring nude female statues as furniture. It talks about the use of the female form in the mostly male arena of pre-modernist painting.

Warning: very 80s

blurry approach

I'm working with the idea of landscapes, here's a small 4X6 test strip- big painting started, will post when there is more done. Also, google Franz Kline; his black lines on white are excellence.

Haven't been on here in a while (work has picked up a bit), so here's something hefty, or at least an hour and a half of entertainment. Very immersive, not a normal documentary and not informative in a traditional sense, but you get massive value out of it. Follows work in 4 instances

Nigeria slaughter-yard
Indonesian Sulphur harvest
Ukranian miners in exhausted coal fields
Pakistani ship breaking

excellent stuff.

sketch of Peter...

That's gonna turn into a painting!

Then next week we were going to do lifedrawing set up as a murder crime scene.. but some people (3) had an issue with that... so now it's a girl with headphones and laptop and bag of chips?

I was looking forward to the crime scene... with fake blood... and caution tape... and perhaps Horatio's glasses.

Well.. here is the sketch I made today.. of Peter while he was trying to sketch me.
I don't know how to draw facial hair...

amerrrrika, AMERIKA

hi everyone, i don't know why i spelled the country's name just like jerry rubin, but i did.
so there.  YUPPIES.
i don't even think i have anything to link to right now, or even a pretty picture to put up.  sorry.
however, i just spent a week in arizona (at least i think it was a week) and within that time frame i saw approximately 2, 301 saguaros, told maybe 18 lies, wrote some music, ate four gourmet cookies (delish), and had one sweet sweet lucid dream (finally again).
now i am packing and leaving and getting on a plane in the morning, just in time for a party back in homelandottawa (sincerely one word)
no more smear campaigns haunting my television!  because i don't have a television back home!  yaaaaay!
OK i lied (#~19), here's a picture, it's my new guitar.  i bought it in a sketchy county, through an intreenet ad, hooray!

my sleep cycle is gonna be silly back in the ex-colony.  no more underage beers&tequila in barz :-(
