Alexie Alla Prima. Oil Painting from Life. 8 x 10 on Canvas.About 2 hours

A new Model at the Tuesday night Academy of Art figure workshop the other night.  
I was exhausted from a long day in class but when she popped in, well it was ON.

Thank you Model Alexie for inspiring me!

A Poster study for a painting of Sophie.  On CanvaPaper.
Approximately 7 x 6"
I have not done a poster in a while and it felt great
to do one.  I learned this process/technique from Anthony Ryder and Anna Wakitsch @ the Anthony Ryder School in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Destined to remain unfinished - Christine

I substituted for the master Henry Yan ( humbly!) last week for his Figure Painting 1 class.  It's a great group and I enjoyed painting with them and helping them on their painting journey(s)!

Below is my painting/demo of Christine.  One of two amazing models for the class this this past week.  Only sorry I won't get to work any more on this ..  At any rate, I am happy with what is happening with my life paintings - a new level of "I know what to do here" has taken hold and it is pretty freeing.  On to the next!

I wanted to share with all of you my proud accomplishments - only completed moments ago .. finally proving that the less you practice and the more you skulk around on art forums, watching art dvds, reading art books, why - the better you will be! My course "Stop all that crazy nonsense ( e.g., practice)" will be available shortly at my website. Please use the following link " "stopallthatcrazynonsense.com" (tm) to connect to this invaluable new, 30 disk dvd series. It is in HD and additionally - 3d if you select the "super-lux" option ( only an additional 37.95 Euro) for your family pack of 3d glasses (3.2 units., approx.,).
