    Back in the city again for some days. Trying to finish some paintings I left here. Here's an old sketch I remembered and decided to polish a bit.

    Here's some in progress photos from a few of the paintings I've been working on. Some I've finished even, but I don't seem to have any photos from the finished ones. I'll probably do one huge photo session with them once I hit my deadline and have more finished stuff.

    And my "studio" for the summer. Whatever else there's to be said about it, there's certainly no lack of space! There would be more of that too if I didn't have to share the space with a sailing boat, but I'm not picky. Natural light plenty available, once the doors are open. The easel is way too small for the paintings I'm doing, but it's impossible to move my studio easel there.

    Wow, you really seem to handle traditional mediums well! Watercolors have always been a hard spot for me, and with oils, im just taking my baby steps keep on posting your awesome work! Until the next time!

    thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!

    anyways, i'd just like to say your oils are amazing ad so are your watercolours. you have a really good grasp on the media, and on colours.

    Thanks for stopping by .

    Ages since the last post again, shame on me. Got very little time now for doing extra sketching between trying to get all my paintings done on time and my new job. And tho the job is as fun as anything it has the downside of a very tight NDA, in other words I'm not allowed to tell which projects I've worked on and or show any of the work, ever .

    Some new pictures from the paintings, they're damn hard to photograph the bigger they get the harder the picture taking is.

    And some watercolors I might not have posted, at least I didn't see them at a glance.

    And some hand studies, which are actually the only really new thing. The latest painting I've started is of a pair of hands, and I figured I could use the practice before going any further with it. Lost patience with the second one.

    I graduated! Good for me. Now that the pressure is off painting I'm planning on doing lots of small plein air studies during my holiday week. Hope that goes well.

    I think I managed to complete 17 or 18 painting. Some randoms here.

    Did a selfportrait today, in an attempt to get personal studies rolling again. Cut my hair too, loving how easy it is when it's short.

    Did my first Chow! Lesson learned, don't try to erase pencil lines just after applying watercolor on top of the ink lines...

    I tried to find some environment concept I did, but I've apparently stashed them somewhere really safe. But I found this test I did of using a bamboo tablet at my new job, it works even if it does look like a toy. Still I'm so glad I got an intous one in the end.

    I'm being so active now I wonder what's wrong with me. Scanned the watercolor and guache paintings I did on my honeymoon. I have this thought at the back of my mind that one day I'll pick up my brush and know how to paint with watercolors. It's BOUND to happen sooner or later, right!?!

    I actually bought a set of guache just for this trip, but I just didn't get the hang of applying them opaquely. I always have trouble reaching the saturation I want, I just need more practice.

    Great works you've got here, always wanted to have the ability and time to use tradition paints....oh well maybe sometime in the far future.

    As for the critiques, i would love to see some more sketches like on page 1, anatomy and composition.
    In my opinion you're really good now in drawing and painting still life and portraits,
    i would love to see from you some more imaginative work and sketches, as you did with the Chow entry.

    About the digital- you're getting better in it with every try, keep practicing painting and drawing and you"ll become pro really fast.


    Alex.


    Open for commissions......just PM me.

    nonobot: Thanks!

    Fallenangel: Thank you for the thoughtful reply, hopefully I'll really be posting more imagination stuff now, since I've decided to make myself a portfolio for the first time ever! Unless school folio counts, and that sucked.

    I have to admit, I hate scanning in sketches, it takes bloody ages. Not that I sketch a lot either, I really should improve that. But painting is just so much more fun!

    My environment painting holiday wasn't as fruitful as I'd hoped, just managed to finish these three, and was left with two unfinished ones.

    Last one was half painted during the worst downpour ever, too bad I really failed the finishing.

    I was going to participate to chow last week, but half way through I just completely forgot what I had wanted to do with the piece, so I left it.
