This is a very somber, moody image. The intense use of dark paint that weighs and anchors the foreground as well as the brushstrokes of...

Lake Michigan in Winter by janneward
Lake Michigan in Winter
A 20 min speedpaint I did for some artistic exercise. I need to work on looser brushwork and not getting bogged down in detail and exercises like this really help with that. I think I got a good  final product out of it as well.

oil on canvas: 24 x 30
 palette: Paynes Gray, Prussian Blue, Torrit Gray, Titanium Zinc White, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna.

Foggy Day Lakeside by janneward
Foggy Day Lakeside
Title is pretty self explanatory. I liked how the diffuse lighting and wet weather brought out the reds and greens in the landscape.

I'm bogged down in classwork right now and playing Inquisition when I have free time. I have yet to finish a playthrough, but its giving me loads of ideas for fanart.
I did start a new LOTR painting, I haven't worked on anything like that for so long. But I reread The Hobbit recently, so. I'll post pics to my wip folder as soon as I can. I am also cleaning out more of my gallery to make room for new work. I realized in looking over all my folders that I have too many different looking things. I'm going to try and focus on one style and get more consistent in my work. That's about it.

Interplanetary by janneward

Just an abstract I worked on over the holidays with some leftover gold paint and silver paint I had. It was a good practice for balancing negative and positive space.

Arrangement in Purple and Gold by janneward
Arrangement in Purple and Gold
An abstract painting I created using only the palette knife. I like how the hints of gold play up the richer tones found among all the purple.

I am a 36 yr old pc gaming, cat inheriting, book nerd! I used to practice western martial arts. I am a fair hand at painting and drawing.

When I was in high school, my friends made me watch the entire Star Wars trilogy in one sitting. It introduced me to the fantastic realm of possibilities that is fan art in Fantasy and Sci- Fi.. I was hooked. From there I became interested in comic books.
I studied Illustration at Columbia College in Chicago until I dropped out. I wasn't out going enough to be a professional artist. I continue doing art now because its something I love and want to improve at but on my own terms this time around.
Anyone interested in commissions or purchasing an original please send me a note-
I'm also on tumblr- adragonatemyart.tumblr.com/

Please do not steal my work- IT IS COPYRIGHTED. Ask permission.

Current Residence: Chicago
Favorite genre of music: I'll listen to almost anything.
Operating System: Windows
Shell of choice: I'm out of mine - won't go back
Wallpaper of choice: I would rather paint on the walls..but no one ever lets me.
