At the Jazz club..

something I whipped up recently for fun. I wanted to paint something blue... I don't know why...

Somewhat (but not really) inspired by Sunfest.

trees on a hill

ah yes, I have now become one of those countless artists that paints trees on a hill.

(seriously type it into any image search engine. You'll get a bajillion paintings.)

I wanted to paint a wheat field before they were all harvested, and kept driving by yellow fields with purple clouds and thinking "man. I HAVE to paint that." I also wanted to paint it digitally, cuz I'm trying to get better at digital painting before third year hits us. I soon discovered two things:

1. My laptop lasts about 30 minutes when it is unplugged.

2. There are no wheat fields within extention cord reach.


So instead I settled for painting these trees by sitting outside the milking parlour with an extension cord..

I toned down the colours a bit, they were mad. When you paint out in the sun with the laptop being backlit things get crazy...

cows with hats

if you're wondering what possessed me to make such a piece, this was based on a comment on my recent upload of cow sketches. My friend Heather suggested I draw some cows with hats. So I did. Happy belated birthday Heather.
