Recent works at the studio of Travis Schaht in Winter Tribeca, NYC

Kathleen - oil on linen from life over about 5-6 hours I think.  About 10 x 12"
And a progression from umber block-in to finish.. I moved that ear!  

John Oil on ARches Cold Press paper for oil paint..   Shoulda' toned it as those first paints are a doozy (for me) on bright white!  Great model to draw/paint!  From life - all of these are in Natural winter NYC light!
Danny, from life - about 3-4 hours on RSG treated Daler-Rowney grey paper ( Danny's invention- thank you for the gift of the paper!)..  From life..

There is one more to post but I will need it to dry a bit as it's a bit shiny.. Thank you much much to Travis Schlaht for allowing me to paint with him and learn from him.. A great guy, fantastic artist and teacher and also, (I am told) has a mean hook shot from above the key!.

Travis explains the finer points of the pick-and-roll to Kathleen, our 2 session model !

A self portrait quicky on canson canvas pad .. about 2 hours..

A Small celebration - to my excellent Heads and Hands class this semester ...

This is a composite of graphite studies of each of my Heads and Hands students for this semester.  I made a large archival print for them.  It's a surprise today - I hope they enjoy it as much as I have teaching them this semester.   Don't look too closely you may see all of the errors!  Graphite on Strathmore 400 cream vellum paper.
