Hopefully Omari will still talk to me ..





about 22 hours into my 2nd homework project in head painting. to take it to a super-refined level I think I would need another 10-20 hours that I don't have ( due tomorrow).. the glare is from wet paint.. and it's a bit "wide-angled" by my camera so not exact but close enuf! here is the block in below the final.. i'll post some school stuff that's in my locker soon! well.. I like it! ;-)
Lisa who modeled at Mark E's workshop - this is about 2.5 hours and on a 9 x 12 board.. i want to get to where I can lay down the key planes faster with a nice feel ( a la Liberace!).. pleased with this but it's.. as Irys says.. only "meh" ;-) Below - a few head portraits from Head Painting one class.. they don't all go up on the blog for a reason!

I like it too. But I noticed that there's a tendency of making the reds and yellows and blues too prominent. It looks really James Wu, if that's what you're going for. But since I know you love Jacob Collins I suggest toning the saturation of one or the two primaries down :D

NOT GOING FOR JAMES WU BY ANY plan .. and hope to avoid even in happenstance!!!! but I agree that some colors are too "hot" (and not pushed back in chroma to where they should be. Also, Not at all using the J.C . "dead palette" ( lead white, naples y, yellow ochre, english red, burnt umber, neutral black).. which casts the world in a gold huu.. fair and right carquin commentary all the same.. dang! ;-)
