Wild Turkey Painting in Gouche

Turkey in GoucheHere’s my portrait of a wild turkey in gouche. Quite a bird. I also varied the background a bit by setting down saran wrap before the paint had completely dried.

I did get a chance to meet artists at Artists Connect in Edmonds (their tagline is Artists Helping Artists) and next week I thought I’d check out Evergreen Association of Fine Arts which meets in Bellevue. These a great communities – usually some demos, critiques, and opportunities to have art displayed.

My classes this quarter are Art History II and Perspective. I’ll post my papers on Max Ernst and Laocoon and His Sons from last quarter when I get a chance. The two paintings I’m working now both involve landscapes, so I’m definitely getting beyond my comfort zone. This week I collected examples of atmospheric perspective in paintings and I’ll share those too.
