Fishing with Gummies!




There goes another semester, I've learned a lot. Unfortunately, this is the only piece I want to put in my portfolio. hope you all like it!
(Most of my class assignments are not suitable for my portfolio, though I have developed a liking in painting children portraits. Thats maybe something to consider as a side job down the road.)

Anyways, I did this completely in acrylic, instead of watercolor. I wanted to see if I can do it. the colors can be more vibrant, but I wan't able use the lift of technique after the paint dries. The result is not very different in my opinion. but maybe one day, i can paint looser and faster in watercolor and fix things in acrylic?
I'm not sure yet, we'll see.......

i really thought this was watercolor!! amazing work isabella, was this for kazu's?

isabella said...

well kinda......i had the same concept in illl 1 but that was pen n ink and my composition skills were pretty poor.......then steven kloepfer suggested to me to redo the concept in a medium and style consistent with my profolio. and i handed in for kazu's acrylic final....so technically..

Hey this is your long lost drop out friend from honors portfolio. This looks good, awesome concept. The colors look a little more vibrant on this piece. Did Kazu not site you the lift off technique with alcohol?

@ricky- thanks! i glad we got to meet in person! i really dig the comic u did in 24 comics, i told dan cooney that day when i saw it on the walls! great sketches btw

@ ernesto- yes kazu did teach us that, but i'm painting this on watercolor paper, and if I use acohol it damages the paper.
