Washington D.C.: The Washington Monument

The other day I created a collage of the Washington Monument - I'm planning to add this to my Etsy shop in the next week or so. It's my first attempt at doing the DC series, and I know that the more I practice the same subjects, the more I can improve. So here's my first try:

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Did you do anything exciting? I've been pretty busy with a number of things. I feel like the days have been speeding by.

Progress Picture #3: In the Woods

I've noticed that my color palette seems to be a lot darker and duller than the work I did for my senior thesis exhibition - maybe my creative mind is influenced by the cold weather? Anyway, I think in a couple more sit-downs this will be complete:

Face Study

I'm going to put this one away for a bit. I'm planning to start working on a mini-collage series of scenes of D.C. Hopefully I can get one of those started and completed by next weekend. We shall see how productive I will be.

Blue Barack Obama (no. 2 in a series)

"Blue Barack Obama (no. 2 in a series)"
Collage on mat board

The week wouldn't be complete without an Obama collage--or so it seems. I've been making a lot of these for my Etsy shop. This one won't appear in my shop until later today or tomorrow (I'll update this post with the link later).

Progress Picture #1: Face Study

I'm working on a couple of projects at once, and this one is a small piece that I just started. It's 9"x12" on black mat board--hence the black spots will get covered up in a little bit. It's a rough start.
