    Work from this past year (large dl)

    I've been studying with William Whitaker for a little over a year now, so I thought I'd make a post with some of my favorite pieces from the past year.

    You ought to be damn proud Emmerly.
    This is impressive work.
    And the oil portrait you just finished is stunning.
    Keep it up, and please post more. Your hard work is really paying off.

    Those still life's are beautiful, as is that portrait. I could see the whitaker influence in that one before I read your post. Impressive body of work.

    These are really great studies!
    They remind me that i should let my wacom rest from a time to time and get back to some traditional practise.

    Whitaker's studio system clearly suits you very well Emily. There is an involvement with the copies that goes well beyond the great skill you are mastering. The oil portrait shows how comfortable you are with your means because you are saying so much with such quiet forms. Lovely work.

    We learn the tools of our trade so that we can build the house that is the painting as well as possible. This is all that we can ever have control of - whether the painting has 'magic' or 'that something' can never be put there deliberately. We must simply build well and as conscientiously as we possibly can, since that is where love of what we do is to be realised.
    And that is when the house can become a home.

    Emily,
    I'm really speechless. I cannot express how I feel exactly, but I will try:
    All your studies are beautiful, that last Portrait WOW!! just Gorgeous! It's more then impressive to me, you seem to be heading into something beyond skill. Your portraits are creating their own personality that I can believe.
    I wonder what you will do next.
    Cheers,

    Very very nice Emily. The portrait copies are so nice. Very intresting copies. Where did you find the prints?
    I've done the same bargue as the one you had at the top of your post. Very subtle.
    How long have you been studying under Whitaker?

    And the last oil portrait is stunning. How long did it take? From life right?

    The progress yo've done is excellent. I admire and wish you the best of luck you.

    Hot DAMN Emily,
    That is amazing, seems Whitaker is one hell of a teacher..props to both him and you, those pencil portraits are beautiful and that last oil portrait is breathtaking..I honestly can't think of what more to say.

    Haven't done it in a while but this deserves it: BEST OF CA

    i think of everyone on ca, I am most proud of you and mindcandyman. You have made such rapid growth that I must only bow with respect.

    The thing that you bring that you do not get from william is the most important part...and that is your ability to capture the moment and capture the soul.

    I look foward to seeing what you do now that your ability to do studies has reached a professional level.

    Do you have plans to do any work with more narrative or deeper content? What are the next steps for you in Williams program? Multiple figure? Curious....
