current projects in art class

been working on two paintings since monday. it’s some sort of a “prequel” to our final project. we were asked, um, told to one: paint a picture about anything, as long as we pay attention to composition, value shifts, lalala… and all that crap; two: make a painting inspired by a song or a poem, but keep away from making literal interpretations.

so far, i’ve finished the open-content painting:

ganda no? originally, it didn’t have that lady in the middle, but on my way out of the studio, i looked up and saw the body plasters we used last semester in my drawing class, i thought the painting would look better with it.

the second i’m having troubles with. see for yourself:
