Recent Works in Painting 1 Class

i painted this baseball mitt for one of our reductive monochromatic painting assignments. It was symbolic of natalie's and my freshmen year experience. Whether its my morning wake-up calls to Ringo's snoring or worse Piscotty's pillow tackles, late evening surprises to Marcus on my bed like a sleeping angel or Sahil's terrorist 24 fights. My next goal is to have them all sign this small painting, so one day, i'll make money.

both are completed using reductive techniques. This means that no white paint is used. you use a wash cloth or mineral spirits to take away paint showing the organic canvas.
