Wow! Thank you all for visiting my sketchbook.
Sunny and Mangix- I study a lot of alla prima painters to get a sense of what information i could omit. Guys like Zorn, Sargent, Mullins, Cicinimo never sacrifice drawing and structure for painterly bravura. One thing to remember is that just because it looks like it was done in one attempt, it doesn't mean it was. Every time I repaint a passage, I learn more about my subject. A better understanding leads to a better explanation. I end up seeing the form in a bigger, more general way and understand the relationships between the value pattern and the planes to, this also allows me to "stack" my strokes strategically.
I've been trying to devote more time to finished work, and experimenting with different media (I've got some gouache stuff that I'm afraid to show) .
Here is a WIP and some poorly composed thoughts.
current shot, it is by no means "pretty" yet, but of course that isn't the point at this stage. Still playing around with varying degrees of information in the figure and tweaking the pose. I'm not very satisfied with the read of the negative shapes. I should probably spend more time outside of the figure, and not compartmentalize my efforts. I should probably flip it more too. Destroyed the hat... lets try this again. Please stand by.
Not yet resolved, far from polished.
a commission wip done in acrylics, hoping to finish this up soon.
