Pier at Sunset by maybelletea Pier at Sunset by maybelletea
SO I hadn't done an oil painting since September. I didn't do oils at all during the school year. ;_; It's so messy/time-consuming. 

But I'm glad I finally did another and am excited to do more this summer (I already have another on the way).

Oil on canvas, 8x10".

Everything is well painted,I love the waves that are crashing but I think you should have used a little lighter blue colour on the clouds at the top right corner.

Yeah, the pier seems a little off, although it could be seen as turning at an angle I suppose. xD

Thank you so much!

How beautiful! Mostly I like smooth texture, but you made it look persuative and living (it looks not too smooth, so correct me if I'm wrong).

Love this! It's got both depth and texture!
Not only messy and time consuming, but you need the space to do it in, too.

Yeah, it's easier to do it at my kitchen table at home rather than my desk in a dorm.

oh opaque means non-transparent- so it describes oil and acrylic!

9o9!! this looks wonderful, dang
i hate painting q_q i had painting class in my last year of high school this year and while i loved it bc of my teacher and friends and crap, ooh god the pain

i srsly am not diggin the messy part of oil paintings

:iconmaybelletea:
maybelletea Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
thank youuu!! it's really great to get back into oils.

oh omg yeah it can be pretty messy- while painting this I accidentally flipped my brush and it hit my head so that a little bit of my hair was stained blue for a few days. thankfully it wasn't noticable bc it was hidden

have you done anything with acrylic or watercolor? watercolor's my favorite!

i mostly worked with acrylic and tempera this year
(like this! http(: )//puu(.)sh/acGZP/326c6d357c(.)jpg and http(: )//puu(.)sh/acH8r/59152a0500(.)jpg )
i never really got the hang of acrylic, my main problem is that i'm not very good at doing lights and shadows for definition instead of actually just using solid lines like i'm used to q_q i totally understand the concept too, and i can do it more or less (still not very good but better than paint) digitally, but it just doesn't work out for me in acrylic T_T but i'm gonna be starting as an illustration major in late august so hopefully i'll get more stuff down! uvu
personally, while i think watercolour is def one of the prettiest mediums, i'm not very good at it so i stay away from it for now :x but it's definitely the most fun one to experiemtn with and just let loose with B)

and omg i lost count the amoutn of times i've gotten paint in places it shouldn't be this year LOL

Ooh that's super nice, very graphic in style, I like it!!

Hmm well oil is easier for that because you can manipulate the paint more since it stays wet longer, which equals more easier blending.
Aaah you should try it more... so fun. ;-; It's the traditional medium I use most but I still want to get 34968504 times better at it.

Have you ever worked with charcoal? I've only really used it in class bc we had to. So messy.

:iconsodaapop101:
sodaapop101 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Student Digital Artist
ahh thanks! uvu
and i generally find that digital is my favourite medium >v<

and i have but a loong time ago.. i like the look you can get from it when you use that dark dark colour it can give you, but generally i agree and think it's too messy x_x messy mediums are probably amongst my least favourite
plus storing charcoal drawings is difficult too Q_Q even if you spray over them

Yeah I love digital omg. *_* But digital painting (like painterly style)... I struggle so much I WANT TO GET BETTER. I am tryin.

oh yeah true, lol I kind of left my charcoal drawings from winter term there and she told us to pick them up or she'd get rid of them WELP
I took photos of them anyway so you know w/e

I was in a figurative drawing/painting class, drawing from nude figures every week! really good class. but it was 4 hours every friday at 8:30am OTL

ooh i know what you mean, i also struggle with stuff like that when it comes to digital but there are a lot of diff styles to try out so i don't mind not being so adept at digital painting for the meanwhile B)

and aahh im gonna start college as an illustration major freshman in late august so i can't wait to get into classes like that (/ v \) i'm pretty sure i have a class that includes drawing from figures this semester but i'm not totally sure >v>; EITHER WAY IM MAD HYPE
