This is the first tree painting I did for my class. I don't like it as much as the others I've done since, but I think there are some nice qualities about it. I did a charcoal under of the tree and then painted in all the negative space around it. I've used this method again in my other paintings, and although it takes a lot of time, I think the different values in each space makes for a more interesting piece.
In this painting I was supposed to combine line with paint. I did a charcoal under drawing and covered it with glazes. This rooster definitely looks like he has an attitude. :)

This is one of my paintings from my oil painting class this semester. I decided to go with the theme of trees. I really like them as an image and also the symbols they're tied to.
