workshop and class paintings..

This figure is a 2.5 hour workshop painting.. experimenting with color and temp.. and everything.. ( they are like "sprints" these little workshop paintings!) can't wait to see what REAL sprints are like in quick studies w/Tomutsu next semester. Apropos of nothing (here), was reading about a presentation where Nelson Shanks said, roughly, that brush strokes are like a type face .. and are not the end but the means ( you don't see a lot of brush in his work).. um.. what to make of it at this point in my beginning.. i not sure!



Head painting class this last week - Eliza - in very bright light from high up.. i might work on this some more - she is a great model and it's no where near where i'd like it but .. um..


below another 2.5 hour quick oil sketch.. very plane-y.. but i liked how the model was standing..

I really like the top painting. Nice composition, shapes, and amazing colors. My eye is drawn around so that it never leaves the page. Two thumbs up!
