Road Work.

A few painting studies from my time on the road. These are from the Robert Liberace workshop in Kimberly, Wisconsin via the Richeson art school and manufacturing center. Lots of great info and some nice work from other artists as well!



Above is Nikki, about 5 hours on Utrecht panel (about 10 x 12").  I enjoyed the challenge of this pose and might have benefited from a smoother surface given the short time-frame.   lots of glare on the weave - I will take another photo when it gets here ( shipped) and re-post if that is better.  I learned quite a few things I will work to add to my arsenal with the head and figure.  Thanks much Sir Liberace!

This head study (below) is my painting previous to the above.  He was a fun model to paint though quite hot and red under the yellow-ish lights!  about 3 hours on canvas panel and 8 x 10".



Above a figure study of Chris - great model - about 3 hours or so in three tubes - burnt umber, burnt sienna and white.  Nothing like keeping things unified to have it all make sense!


a 30 minute grisaille ( in burnt umber) of Nikkie..  meant to be a wipe-out and re-use but I liked the feel of it so I kept her "alive!"



And two 40 and 30 minute figure studies..  8 x 10 cotton canvas utrecht panel..
