The end of a school year.

Here is a batch of some of the works I have produced over the spring semester. Of course, none of these are products from school... even though that’s where most of my time and energy is consumed. I am still practicing with oil paints and plan to use them further, however I have also dabbled with watercolor paints. I'm finding the medium very enjoyable and hassle-free, at least for quick studies and field sketches.

Valkyrie's Wrath

I recently took a trip to the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. There I saw some mind blowing landscape paintings by Albert Bierstadt. The environment for this piece was influenced by his work. I still have a long way to go, but just studying his use of value and color made the process a lot easier.
