A few new paintings !

Above -- Richard on 12 x 18 masonite (via home depot).. about 80 cents per board w/tax ! this is a 1 hr 40 minute study give or take a few minutes.. I like how the paints stay vibrant after drying on the board!

11 x 14 of terry.. about 1.40 hours as well..

30 min quick study.. wanted to keep painting her but tomutsu tells me that's not the point(s)!

a few quick study paintings and some.. what else ? - figures

A few new long pose figures.. learning new things and .. gettin' somewheres!

Here is a painting I recently wiped.. this is about the peak of its goodness and then it fell over and got the big WIPEOUT! ;-)

Below is "Ted and Coke and nuc-u-lar apple".. this is from quick studies on some kind of Masonite board 11 x 14 (thanks Edmund for the board to try and Janet for insisting on the Ted!) - 40 minutes plus about 15 minutes of final value/chroma tweaks after.. (note : the cast shadow on the apple is not that dark.. it's my camera's fault ! ( me))..

Below is Edmund - about 1 hour.. 12 x 16 canvas board for quick studies homework..

Below is a 45 min QS on masonite board..
Below about 1hr 40 mins figure study of Kristen.. the brown bg needs to be fixed and she could have had some more paint but .. spent too much time on the HEED! ( again!)
