Newish Portfolio Pieces and Portfolio Editing


Flying Kites on the Dunes
Ruah
Stargazers

I've been working on updating my portfolio - taking out what doesn't mesh with my more recent work and adding some more black and white pieces.  Above are three new pieces I've added.  They're from my drawings from the prayer room; my friend Jen Betton suggested that some of them might work well enough for black and white portfolio pieces with some editing.

My portfolio looks much thinner, now, but I think overall it flows better.  Working on adding some more color pieces, soon! So stay tuned!

I'd love to know what people think!

October the Twenty-Fourth

"'Where am I, and what is the time?' he said aloud to the ceiling. 
'In the house of Elrond, and it is ten o'clock in the morning,' said a voice. 'It is the morning of October the twenty-fourth if you want to know.'"

-J.R.R. Tolkien, 
The Fellowship of the Ring, Book 2, Chapter 1

From the Prayer Room Week 12


So this is the piece for this week.  I've decided to try and color it digitally, as you can see below.  I'm using Wylie Beckert's process that I head about in ImagineFX.  


 

     

We'll see how it goes.  I'm a little discouraged at this point, but, I'm gonna try and push through.

I'm catching up, slowly but surely.
