Weekly Painting Week 100- the simple things

nude3

Back to basics- figure drawing with charcoal. One piece of paper, one stick of charcoal, one eraser, a cloth. I had a discussion with a fellow artist, he said good drawing was not necessary for good painting. I am on the other side– work on drawing, make better paintings. Draw, draw, draw. Thanks for following all the way to week 100- whew! 18 x 24- “Athena”

Weekly Painting Week 82 Figure Painting

Capturing emotion, getting proportion right, deciding to go more painterly or more photoreal, choosing a palette.. the reason figure painting is so challenging. This painting is 30 x 40″ so a misstep stands out. Aim small, miss small, I suppose. Lots of layers in the chromatic red, this is an homage to Sibley’s Preparation. Not sure if it is finished..we’ll see.

Weekly painting Week 67- Draw, draw draw

I had this great advice from one of my teachers- if it is not working out in paint, try sculpting it. If It doesn’t work out there, draw. If you aren’t getting any good drawings, read. So I took a break and got out the pencils and Copics and came up with these. No masterpieces, but at the end of the day I was surrounded with smiling faces!
