self contained, self containing

not a real update. heh. I've been busy, too too busy... but here are two studies.

the most perplexing and I think probably the most important thing about painting I've been struggling to learn is that painting has very little to do with the colors your eyes see... and way more with the colors your brain feels in an image. Really trying to copy something will just make it look dull; on the other hand, trying to replicate, exaggerate the colors you can feel in an image will make it look more true-to-life, better, even, than life. It seems so strangely subjective to me, it's hard to wrap my mind around it..

here is what i painted while mulling that over..


and a study on latex

.... expect a better update soon.
