Older school work.

Pretty much just what it says in the tin! Everything in this post is going to be from 2011, and maybe a couple things from January 2012.

Thennn in fall 2011, I had a similar experience with an acrylic still life project. At least with this one we could come up with our own theme and set up our own still-lives [ended up going with something along the lines of  the "coexistence of Native American and Western religion"]. Even though I ended up with a pretty nice result, I had figured out that I hated realistic photo rendering with a passion-

[acrylic, ~10"x10", 50+ hours]

By the end of the fall 2011 semester, I had passed my major's portfolio review and then was required to fill a small sketchbook over the winter break. Here are a few pages I still like-

[SKB pens, Micron pens, watercolor pencils, watercolor, acrylic]
