Autoportrait in Oils

This has been a reasonably productive week, as I managed to work on two 3D sculptures, document my painting and an exhibition, as well as keep up with my Instagram and attempts at returning to doing more regular photography, and have been keeping my website up to date with recent digital works.

On the note of the portrait, I decided not to add another coat of paint, and leave it as a single session painting, a useful exercise and practice that will probably end up stuffed behind furniture, out of sight, soon enough.

Weekly Summary: 21.11.16 – 27.11.16

 

This week I have been working on some drawings, and a few digital paintings, and have set up an Instagram profile with the intention of using it to revitalise my enthusiasm for photography, and would at the very least give me something to post on here on a semi-regular basis. However, actual output has been minimal.

Decimari III Mutant [WIP]

I was mostly working on a few digital paintings this week, and put some time into a couple that have been dragging on for a while, such as the Profluvium piece, which is not the best composition I have come up with, so may be revisited in the near future.

Work has been quite busy this week, with the large format printer being somewhat difficult, and some flooding causing disruption. Nevertheless, I have managed to squeeze in a small amount of work on another Decimari sculpture, mostly modify the symmetric model and preparing it for rendering.

Outside of this, its been another burn.
