    Screwed up the last one. I might go back and try and fix it, but I think I'll stay small atm. Started another one. This is cropped a bit as I'm considering changing the composition - that's the great thing about painting on hardboard, being able to chop bits off later.

    Small update on the picture. I'm sort of putting the detail in the background and then losing them.

    WOW I love # 2162, can I ask you how do you sell them ?!
    Is it like reprints/ cards, posters, there are all kinda
    possibilities. I opened up a Redbubble shop desperately to
    get some coins rolling in my wallet!

    Do you have another forum where you post/ sell ?!

    I sold to someone on FB just by posting it and them falling in love with it. Total chance.

    Life drawing on Thursday, and yes, she did have very short arms and legs; compact and curvy.

    I think the last painting is great! I was afraid that the background would sort of overtake the picture, but you kept it subtle and it blends in great. Is there any reason why you chose such a background? Would love to hear a story behind it if you have!

    I normally don't get to the feet, so I tried harder thus the lack of hands.

    Another oil painting study. I'm still being a bit hit and miss at times. About 7.5" x 5.5"

    Great work on the portrait; I really like how the expression came out. It feels genuine and lifelike.

    For a crit, I feel like the forehead is a little flat, particularly on the left side by the hairline. A little form shadow there could help it feel like it's curving away from us in space. Also adding brush strokes that suggest the curvature of the form can help make the subject feel more 3-dimensional. I think you have a little bit of that going on in the shadow-side cheek already, but conscientiously adding that to other rounded areas (like the forehead and neck) could help it pop off the canvas a little more.

    Keep up the good work!

    Trying to improve my pencil technique, as I'm doing th Start program and my master studies are suffering because of it (see that thread for them), but here's a partial one that was beginning to turn into Noah Bradley. Now people want him to wear a wig.

    Fed up with doing everything in monochrome, so I did it in colour and grey scaled it later. Don't tell Jason.

    These last updates came like a large grouped shovels flying through air,
    slicing down and through raw environment, leaving all the witnesses mouth wide open,
    indeed you have surpassed our expectations once more, all the life drawing models
    came out very satisfied, like a little child from a freshly built cheese factory.
    The confidence is rising in your hands, every line that you make is appearing
    with stronger reinforcement. I like your sophisticated approach toward strictly
    set goals, first you are like touching around in the dark, trying to find the switch,
    and it takes some time, but when you find it, you have definitely found it, make
    no mistake about it. Your line quality shines exactly in a same way, first you
    were unsure but then you have nailed it, even those small details you are getting
    down right. Your icy cool demeanor has changed to a fiery burning desire which
    hardly can be tamed, my hands are sweating all the sudden. Your oil painting
    skills are also crystalizing out, fogged lands right behind, you’ve improved
    your borders right beyond understanding, I think that a few more paintings
    and you will be right up there, a few levels above, you are amazingly
    climbing up the ladder. Cutting from monochrome to color gave a sweet
    refreshment to your subconscious mind, and right from your boredom
    you’ve jumped into your max creative explosion, I would really
    like to possess your virtually unbeatable persistence, the ability
    to have success at hands. There is nothing else left for you now,
    except big snappy shiny times which are ahead, you just
    brace yourself and get ready to receive all the happiness.

    I've missed this sketchbook totally. Maybe the title has kept me away ;-). Great traditional stuff. I'm so envious of people painting in oils. I have to start doing it myself some time. It's crazy that your doing the Start master studies in traditional media. Making corrections must be a pain!

    wow you doing at lot of those! have you considered printing out your ref piece with a grid overlayed, then drawing in that grid on your paper before you start? it helps a lot with getting the marks down on the first pass. I guess that's even more important with oilpaint.

    that reminds me; I got my water-based oilpaint the other day, but im still hesitant to start. what do you work on? I used to do canvas in artschool, but getting it stretched out right was always such a pain and im not even sure I have the right materials here anymore. have you tried working on board? is that okay?

    I have thought about a grid, but I need to train my eye and I think I'm getting there. Master studies are done in acrylic as they dry quickly for over painting mistakes, especially in this weather and I'm doing them on canvas board, cheap and cheerful. Oil painting I do on gessoed hardboard that I prepare myself.

    Last master study - again on colour, but it's pretty monochrome.

    hey black. the still life is very nice I think. it does feel a bit 'small'; or maybe I should say unimportant. and that might well be a result of the way you've set it up, in a cardboard box like that. I dont know if you want to go for any grandeur, but it would be easier to get if you, you know. get a slightly bigger box. fix it up with some cloth on this inside. maybe black if you dont want an extra reflect light. or 2 walls black, one white or a color. its not just what you see in the picture itself, it's what you see around it as you work; that feeling will be communicated in the work.
    its not bad to use a cardboard box, but I think you should know what it does for you.

    I don't exactly have a large area to work in, and it's not going to get much bigger even it I rearrange stuff. If I do manage to clear out some stuff, I might be able to set up a bigger still life. That one was just on a small lectern with a sheet thrown over something leaning against the wall. While I await for feedback from Jason for the last three master studies, I'm pushing ahead with my portrait. Wiped out the eyes as they were too small and the whole face was too dark. Starting to bring in the design elements I had planned from the beginning.

    Oh and I messed about with that last painting digitally just before cocking it up and having to scrape the face off. The background is final.

    Just wanted to drop by and say this is a very enjoyable sketchbook, I'm not sure if you're wanting critiques but what helps me really place the features of the face is the Reilly abstraction method, sure you've looked into it but I haven't really misplaced the features of a portrait since I looked into it.

    All the best and keep it up!

    Well I really like what you have done with the background on the last portrait. It looks really good and makes a refreshing difference from the usually plain backgrounds we so often see.

    I do keep meaning to get back to studying the Reilly Method, and I do sort of start like that, but lose it when I render too early, which is my biggest problem. Trying to get away from detailing too early. ashess I think I will start using the grid for a while to help me concentrate a bit more.

    In the mean time I've been doing the Colour & Light 1.1, which means a self portrait. Actually done two and both revisited as Jason gave me a critique.
