HOT DOG!




I suck at painting. Fortunately, I have teachers that are really willing to help figure out what's wrong with what I'm doing and give me another chance...and another...and another...

The assignment was to paint a scene in a city involving one person and at least one animal. I decided to paint a hot dog vendor with pigeons eating up his stash of wares. The top painting is my first attempt. Generally, the class didn't think the design was too hot and they didn't like that they couldn't see the guy's face. The focal point was the hot dog, and I thought it read pretty well, but I took their comments and re-worked the whole thing. New design, new colours, new composition...The sucky scan on the bottom is the final piece. Probably a somewhat okay painting, which is a HUGE step up for me. I've gone from bad to somewhat okay. I think.

These are both pretty tiny paintings. They are 5 x 7" and painted in acrylic on illustration board.

The class liked it we just knew you could do better...and you did. Seriosly I can now feel the Vendors angst and frustration it is a great piece.

Hey these are looking great, I like the muted colorscheme of the one on the bottom and the high contrast of the one on the top. They look like they could be sequential or something. Great abstraction too.
