Studying the landscape and color roughs

These little landscape studies are for my illustration 4 class (which is plein air painting). We have been going out every Friday to paint the Provo landscapes. In between classes we've been painting master study landscapes. It's been a lot of fun. Here is a preview of a few of my little master copy studies. 

This is for a project that I'm working on in Senior Studio 1.  The theme is buffet. yum. I decdied to take it to a Hawaiian side of things and explore a child's view of a too tall buffet table. She can't quite reach what she wants off the table. The black and white sketch is my rough value sketch.  (I added another palm tree to the left side in the final) and the small paintings below that are color studies to decide which direction I wanted to take the color. It's quite the process. I'm working on the final piece right now and will post it when I am finished.

Chalk the Block!

Chalk the Block at the Riverwoods in Orem was this weekend. Some illustration friends and I decided to put  together a group. We each decided what we wanted to do and combined them into a big full square. Here are some pictures from the event. I did the corner with the frogs. Rebecca Jones did the hummingbirds, Alyssa Scott did the flying fish and James Gardner drew the beautiful boat. It was fun to see how people reacted and complimented us on our drawing skills. SO much fun. :)
Our square all together

Plein Air Painting- attempt #1

This is my plein air painting from Friday's Illustration 4 class. We painted out on the Provo River Trail. I feel like it turned out decently for my first outside oil painting. :)

Head study in photoshop

Digital Illustration 2...

So this is my first attempt at doing a value study in photoshop... as you can see I still have a lot of room for improvement. I think I do have some potential however and with time maybe I'll become pro. :)
