Update: Change of Site!

Hey everyone! I've recently decided to make myself an Artists Page on Facebook, as I feel like this might be easier and cleaner to update with new art and keep everyone posted on upcoming events, etc :)

My page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/LisaBuchfinkArt


I will be keeping this blog up for a while just so anyone who looks here can see, but all future updates will be on my Facebook page.

Thank you for your time and support as always!

September - Experiments and Updates

Hello again! I must say, I did not do too much art this month as I was largely focused on getting ready for the Edmonton Expo, making as many dragon dice-defenders as possible. But I did squeak in this piece one day! I realized I hadn't done any anatomy studies from life in quite a while, and also wanted to practice some more with watercolour pencils. Partially inspired by the end of the book The Song of Achilles, I came up with this! It's about 9x12 on watercolour paper, using a fountain pen and watercolour pencils.

I also must say that I don't know how much I'll be getting done in the next couple of months, as I will be away for a large portion of October, and upon my return have another project I have lined up, but we shall see what happens and what I do! Sometimes I just like to do stuff for fun in my spare time or to wind down after work or whatever.

Oh, and in regards to attending another expo (seeing as this was my first one!) I would definitely like to try again, but am not sure I will be able to attend the Edmonton one in 2017. This is due to some other events and my schedule in this upcoming year, but if it's possible for me to do the one in 2018 I will definitely be there! Stay tuned!! So many exclamation points!!

July/August Update: Colour!

I realize I didn't do an update for July, though both of these pieces were actually from the second half of the month. As for August... well, I have yet to do any pieces this month due to being busy with work/weddings/and making as many dice-defender dragons as I can in preparation for the Edmonton Expo this September! In any case, what we have here are two pieces in colour: the first, one of my 8x10" rainbow drawings that I love so much of the Starship Enterprise, given the release of the new Star Trek! Meanwhile, the second piece is a 16x20" acrylic painting of my friend's goldendoodle, as a gift I made for her for her wedding shower.

June Update

This month I had two main projects: one, a typical pencil portrait (8x10") like I usually do, but this time of Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa in Captain America: Civil War. The other piece was a commission for a friend, as a gift for a coworker. It is an acrylic painting depicting the recipient's bulldog, and is 16x20" in size.

May Update - Charcoal and Experimental Painting

This month I did a couple of different things: first, an 8x10" charcoal pencil portrait of Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier from the Captain America movies. Because I love him. Also a 5x10" charcoal pencil drawing of a sarcastic shark! Apart from my usual style of drawing, however, I also chose to do some 16x20" abstract paintings, using only palette knives and rulers to apply the paint, as well as make textures and designs. Here are images of all the aforementioned pieces (in the order described):

April Update - More Work with Colour

Now I don't know if anyone has gotten sucked into Shadowhunters on Netflix (I obviously did because I read those books in high school and what have you), but it's absolutely ridiculous and cheesy but super fun! And there was one shot in particular of the lovely Matthew Daddario amongst all these super vibrant green leaves that I just had to try and capture. Turns out I have had a lack of practice in working with colour in a traditional sense, and it was a bit tricky for me compared to those rainbow faces I like to do! In any case, here is the end result: (8x10", pencil crayon on paper)

March Update - Return of the Rainbow Portraits

It's been over a year since I've done any of my Rainbow Portraits, using nothing but color to create shades of drak and light. But I've brought it back, with this portrait of John Boyega. Because why not make this wonderful peanut into nothing but rainbows? I'll admit I went into it a little heavy with the shades, and know how I would approach it differently next time.
