About Vaughn Jennings-White

I'm a Detroit native who now lives in the sunshine state. I recently graduated with a degree in animation and now that I have more time on hand I can start painting again :). I paint with watercolors using my friends, family, people, and environment as sources of inspiration. I presently work as a commercial artist, but I enjoy painting and hope to transition into a painter full time.

007 flashback (WIP)

I started this painting a week or so ago and I'm at the point that I'd like to step away from it and start something new for a while. I liked the mood of the room that I took this picure in and my friends intense gaze. The retro wooden walls and headboards coupled with a dated looking bed spread…

Jasmine (wip)

I haven't posted anything to the members gallery in a while, but I'd like some input if anyone has any on this painting.  I have to do alot more detail work in the face and I received some very helpful comments in the watermedia forum as well. I need to start working in the shadow…

Driano (wip) 2

For the moment I'm finished with this painting. I still need to detail my friends shirt and build up the background slightly more, but I spent a lot of time adding more detail to the face. The skintones felt dull to me, so I pumped up the contrast and I'm pleased with the results so far. I also…

Self Portrait 2

I finally got around to this painting. I don't think I went as far as I should, detailing the coat, but maybe I'll save that for another day, but it's complete for now. Rendering my skin was my biggest obstical in this painting; where the light hits my face, i found myself dabbing random colors…

Driano (wip)

This is a painting I started a day or so ago of my friend in Miami. I don't think it's nearly finished at all, but I'll continue to work on it off and on. The painting was done on arches rough paper. I just purchased ff13, so I probably won't be paying much attention to it…

Self Portrait 2 (WIP)

This is the 2nd self portrait of myself I've done, and I did get some new paper to paint on and it's made a world of difference. I don't think I'm quite finished pushing this painting, there are a few things I'd like to add to it that I can't see at the moment, but…

Tire shop, Detroit, MI

I painted this landscape a few weeks ago. For years I wanted to paint this building, but my school work was so intense I stopped painting all together.  I used coldpress 140lb with a limited palette of about 8 colors. The painting is tiny and it was really difficult trying to capture detail. I worked on…

Self Portrait 1

I've caught the painting bug again and I've been painting up a storm. I managed to pull myself away from my game console long enough to pump out this effort. This is the first portrait i've painted of myself in years and it was a lot of fun working with flesh tones and trying to incorporate…

Steven S (watercolor) unfinished

This is a portrait of a friend of mine taken in mid-stride of saying something probably not important, lol. Since I've started back painting, I've wanted to try and loosin up my style and let the viewer complete the story. I think eventually I want to start incorporating some backgrounds, but for now, I'm trying to…

John_H (watercolor) 9"x12"

Hello everyone. It's been about three years since I last really painted and I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. I did this painting of a friend of mine while he was taking a smoke. I began documenting as much information about my process as possible and I've even started photographing my steps so that…
