    I've never painted before (besides with water colours when I was little), so these are my first attempts, in order. All in acrylic...second has buttons stuck to it. :rofl: First is 8X10, other two are 18X24. Whatcha think? (the colours turned out really wonky on my computer, too. eep.)

    This last one actually has a meaning--Everything around you is coloured by who you are, what you know and where you've been. Even though a fact might have all the same elements to you and someone else, you're going to see it through your own filters.

    don't be afraid to let things overlap. in the first one you break the pattern of the yellow. what would it look like if the face overlapped the yellow?

    i don't know if i like the buttons that much =p

    the 3rd one is certainly your strongest since it has a meaning behind it, plus it makes the viewer think.



    here's a few paintings from my first oil painting class. i've never done an oil painting until i took this class. =o

    Thanks for the input! =) I see what you mean about the yellow lines...

    I really like your last two paintings...I've got a long way to go. Perhaps some classes wouldn't hurt. xD
