Moving and starting over

For ages I have had my work and my blog scattered all over the web and it became increasingly difficult to keep up with it all. I now have one site where my galleries and my blog will be living:

Quick Study #2

This is from my own reference and the theme is “anything to do with water.” This is clouds reflecting in tidal pools and I completed it in 25 minutes. Oil on panel.

Quick Study #1

So, I am in this “Quick Studies” class where we have a timer, and we have to complete a study in the allotted amount of time. There’s no time for farting around with precise drawing and all that. I did about six of the things, three 20-minute studies and three 40-minute studies. I do hope I improve over the course of the semester, but this is the best of the first batch. 40 minutes, oil on panel.

Weekly figure painting #4

Woo-hoo, we got to use a full palette! This jpeg, though, really washed out the colors, and I am having a hard time getting it right in Photoshop. Or rather, it looks fine in Photoshop but crappy when I upload it anywhere. 12″x16″, oil on canvas.

Weekly figure painting #3

This one is larger: 22″x28″. Still the same limited palette of white, burnt umber, burnt sienna and yellow ochre. I find that glazing yields effects that look a little like blues and purples. My handling of hands and feet is still weak, but is it really laziness on my part at this point? Probably so. I’d honestly rather be painting interiors or landscapes.gray_fphw1sm.jpg

Weekly figure painting #2

Limited palette again: burnt umber, burnt sienna, yellow ochre, white. I had a bit of trouble with the far leg, the one that is crossing in the back, so maybe it looks a bit awkward?

Weekly figure study

This is again from Academy reference. It took about 3 hours and it is on a 9″x12″ board. The only colors used are white, burnt umber, burnt sienna and yellow ochre pale.
