The Start

Throughout high school my teachers put a strong emphasis on producing a measured, proportional drawing. I feel like I spent so much time focusing on that one part that I never thought of the picture as a whole and basically spent my time attempting accuracy (which, sadly, rarely happened), and, like most young artists, rendering it to death. The following are samples of my mid to late high school work that also aided in my acceptance to PAFA. Most were done in graphite or colored pencil.

Lately I have noticed my work becoming more atmospheric and think that is where I would like to take it for a while. It's helping me break away from "rendering for the sake of rendering" and I feel like it's allowing me to create an entire space with room to move around the objects, rather than each object made individually with little relation to the others (as can be seen in the last one).
