I worked for Paint Nite Toronto for 7 great months! I learnt a lot, and accumulated boxes of beginner level paintings! I decided to donate these paintings to my United Way Charity Auction at work, and the Handicare International Charity Auction in November. Not only will I donate to two great causes, but I will also clear space in my parents garage :) Win Win!
Of course, since most of these paintings were completed in less than 20 minutes, each painting may not fetch much. However, I hope to gain some power in numbers:)
This table design includes the apple from yesterday’s post, as well as a banana, candle, and ‘goblet’. This was our second 3-Dimensional project on Adobe Illustrator
In Adobe Illustrator, we have learnt about patterning, textures, and more excitingly, 3D objects! As an initial exercise, we had to draw an apple. Of all Design programs I have dabbled in, Illustrator is my absolute favourite. I have always been interested in drawing and painting, so it is exciting to be able to translate that into a vector image. I will soon upload a composition including a table, a vase, and the apple.
Today in my Adobe Illustrator Class, we learnt about the pen tool, brushes, paintbrush tool, pencil tool, and the blend tool. It was so interesting, that I decided to get experimenting during class itself. Experimenting as my instructor taught really helped me grasp the concepts and ask the right questions.
Prior to class, I was sitting outside in the warm sun in a little park, doodling a henna-like design with a blue permanent marker. I used this image as a base for my graphic art. The original doodle is below:
