Oil sketch of a Mexican coffee mug (Café de la Olla). Such a challenge trying to describe all of the local colors and their respected textures. Slide for a closer look!

First 2 week still-life done in class. Learned a lot from this painting. Really tried focusing on a little bit of everything including form, chroma, light, negative space, and how the objects interact with each other. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

20 min. timed sketch of a shoe. Attempting to paint a little looser. The aftermath of the #hundredheads challenge has left a permanent impact on me for the better. You can always make time for these studies. ✊

Portrait of my mother in Cadmium Red Medium and Olive Green. Another super challenging color to try and stretch its value range. It only felt fitting to finish this challenge highlighting my family. I couldn’t be more thankful for all the support and love I’ve felt finishing this challenge and continuing my studies in art. I couldn’t have done this without everyone around me. Big shout-out is due to @jonserious138 and @arce_cola for taking on this insane challenge with me and pushing each other further and further when we felt like giving up. These past hundred days have been incredibly stressful but just as rewarding. Who’s ready for another hundred days? 😅

Portrait of my father in Indian Yellow and Dioxazine Purple. Decided to challenge myself by using two notoriously transparent colors. Not to mention Indian Yellows value range is so tight. #100heads #100headschallenge #hundredheads #sketch #sketchbook #art #portrait #portraitdrawing #portraitpainting #oilpainting #painting #allaprima #allaprimapainting #figurepainting #404taken #trekell #trekellbrushes #trekellartsupplies @trekell_art_supplies @404taken @404iswatching @gamblincolors
