The big top has rolled into town....

And I'm still flailing around trying to figure out where I'm running.
For the first BFA project we're told to follow a specific artist's style, and I chose Neil Campbell Ross as my person.
Who, by the way, is such a skilled painter that I'm actually embarassed about following his lead.
Here's hoping that I can come up with something worthy.
In the meantime, here's a messy little thumbnail I was playing around with. Maybe it'll lead to something, or maybe it won't.

Barefoot coffee roasters

Has this really awesome cafee brulee, which was blow-torched right in front of me once the order was ready. Haha! I'd recommened that if anyone's going there, and get the kouign amann since those are great too.

I was originally aiming for practicing around 1-2 hours and get on with homework, but this painting turned into a 3-4 hour behemoth which I rushed at the end. Oops. Plus it ended up looking oh so flat after all.....
