One Year 100 Paintings - #101, Self Portrait. For this painting, I used Procreate on the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil and a self-portrait photo. I was going for a loose painting to capture the expression in the photo. I made a pencil sketch on a gray toned background and decided to leave the faint lines of the pencil sketch in the final painting. This was the last painting I worked on for the project and though my original plan of painting 100 acrylic paintings was not possible, I combined paintings of different mediums, digital and traditional to complete 100 paintings for the project in 2018. I am happy to say that I received a new Guerrilla Painter 5 x 7 pocket box for Christmas from my wife (it was on my wish list) and I’m excited to get out and try it in the field.
I have recently left my job of many years to pursue a new position and hope to work as a freelancer while doing so. I will be focused on starting a new career in 2019 but I want to continue to work on my creative pursuits in the process. My creative goals for this year are to paint more Plein Air paintings and continue to improve my digital painting and urban sketching skills. I also plan to use my new MiNT InstantKon RF70 to shoot more Instax Wide film and get to really know this camera. I will post samples of my photos after I’ve gotten a chance to try it out more.
What are your creative goals for 2019?
