Quick paint sketches from AAU in February - all from the live model

Mia - about 3 hours and a bit.. 11 x 14 I think.. crappy 2.99 canvas panel; scarf: priceless!

Above: head wrap guy ( Terry ?) over about 7 -8 hours on 16 x 20 crappy utrech canvas..  Below is day one and two of this for those of you who are sleepy!

And a few head studies (and a figure at the bottom) via Glen O's clothed figure class and some from a workshop - all about 20 minutes or less ..

Head studies - about 20-30 minutes each and then some time following to unify.. 

20 Minute Head studies above and below 20 left and 10 right..

5 minute clothed figure gestures..

2 -3 hours form life - very unfinished but I liked it enough to share. On birch ply panel.  Oils.

More to come - thanks for looking!

"There's nothing better than discovering, to your own astonishment, what you're meant to do. It's like falling in love."

I cant tell you how inspirational your work is Kevin. I started putting some effort into drawing people about 2 months ago and I really do feel like Im in love; motivated, happier, looking forward to the future rather than dreading it..
Im 28 and in the last ten years have worked as a car designer, been a homeless junky mess, and all points between.. now that Im drawing everyday none of that seems to matter..
Now I have my own business and time to draw, its changing everything.
Your work has been a big inspiration and I wish I could shake your hand.
So thanks.

Thank you Helen, Sandra Matt and Jala! Al - If I can have an impact on someone else to push themselves - or even just to see where it takes them, that is quite humbling. Thank you for your note. It made my day! ( week, month etc.,)

Hey kevin! Yeah I thought it was a little longer since I visited but no, I had just checked this post a couple days ago.

Here's the link to my tumblr... I'm not sure how I'm gonna promote it, but I feel like for a while that's the only thing I'll really bother updating lol...

Good seeing you today man. Hope it keeps happening.
