Glacier by JakeRomano Glacier by JakeRomano
This was a painting I did over the weekend. I should say it took me a whole year to do since the last time I picked it up was about last August, but all in all I think it took me 4 hours from start to finish. Painting isn't really my strong point AT all, but I'll try and upload a few more from an art class I took when I was thirteen. Sorry that the pic isn't too high quality...my camera AND scanner are kind of on the fritz (No, I don't know what that means...)

Oh, and the composition isn't entirely original. I kind of got inspired by an old Alaskan cruise brochure.

You're welcome! :) I was reading your bio, and I used to carry a sketch book around with me all the time as well; although you are much better. ;) I think that is wonderful, keep up with what you do!

Thanks so much :-) I got that by putting paint at the top of the page then placing the paper vertically so it dripped down.
