Oldies (or Adventures in Gouache class)

I am gathering up paintings and drawings for my portfolio
(Graduate school submission time!!) Looking over old artwork can be fun and distracting.

Here are two studies I did in a Gouache class in college:

My first assignment in the class we had to copy a painting.
This is Monet-Morning on the Seine.


Goes along with the season:

First painting made with an under painting! (that was the lesson, how to do under paintings.) My teacher wasn't very thrilled with it, but I kinda like it...at least the top half anyway.



Second semester we were allowed to create our own projects. I decided to paint a little snail. (not for the whole semester though! I'm not that slow ;P )


In my main porfolio class we were working a huge project. Everyone in 3rd year had to illustrate a series based on the theme"Transformation." I chose a greek myth about a woman who turns into a tree.
Overdramatic sketch for a painting:
