Life Drawing

Still Life update

Here are some work in progress shots of my first still life homework assignment. Its 16 x 16 inchs, oil on gesso board. I think i will sand down the background on the painting to make it nice and smooth, give a little more contrast between the more painterly objects and background.

Life Drawing

Here is a little dump of life drawings I have done earlier this semester. All of which are studies, with times ranging from 3 to 40 minutes. Using charcol on newsprint for all my figure studies at the moment.

Still Life

Here are some images of small paintings I have done in my still life painting class this semester all done from life, all between 3 - 5 hours. Its been nice to get back into painting with oils after an 8 month break. I look forward to tackling some bigger paintings this year as well.
