Back to the Basics
Landscape painting has been a long time passion of mine. I recently had the opportunity to revisit this part of my life in Kevin Anderson's Rapid Visualization class at The Art Institute of Las Vegas. I normally result to digital work using Coral X to save time as a result of pursuing an animation degree but this was a "flex your muscle" project meant to show off the traditional skills we have been building over the past seven weeks; so, I decided to push myself to be a better artist and practice my brush skills. The reference was from a photo I took while on vacation in San Diego. The Harbor served as a perfect contrast for where new meets old. I am planning on doing another location for the class final, possibly a Lake Tahoe piece.
