    Talking Painterly Figures

    Hey,
    Does anyone here know who does great painterly expressive figures? [ lots of use of color in skin tone, a variety of brushstrokes, etc? ]
    As of now I have a couple of other artists in mind that I can use for reference for my next painting
    - Jenny Saville
    - Odd Nerdrum

    Also, who does really good skies? Jeff Soto's skies I do admire due to the fact that he has a lot of color interpretation and various things going on in his paintings.

    Yup yup
    All Help is most appreciated

    Thanks!
    Ashley

    The oil painting demo by William Whitaker have a lot of tips on painting and using color in general http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=83405

    One thing that really clicks for me is the tip that you should push your brush handling skill to the very edge to make it look expressive and spontaneous.
