    Hi Hope!

    Beautiful quick sketches and demos as always.

    Appreciate you posting the Fixler drawings. Haven't seen those three in particular before. Glenn only brings his work out on occasion but he mentions him all the time. Oh, by the way, thanks for recommending Glenn to me - it's a bit of a drive from where I live, but the trip is worth it. Learning a lot.

    You're lucky to have studied with Zhaoming Wu! Did you have any plans to attend Henry Yan's workshop at LAAFA in January? I'd like to go but we'll see if funds and time will allow it.

    Keep postin'.

    Your work is so consistent. So amazing, I love the soft rendering of your drawings and paintings and the perfect lighting and use of values. You have nailed drawing and painting. Your paintings strongly remind me of Sargent. I am your new fan.

    Below are some more stuff from workshops and a class demo - old man in natural light. Gotta love those naked old men!

    Your edges, transitions, and values are so gentle and delicate but so accurate at the same time. The color in the lips on that last painting is fantastic, it reminds me of Sargent.

    Hi Hope,

    I really like the way you play lost and found with the lines in your quick sketches. I'm also digging your shape analysis too. Keep 'em coming!

    What a beautiful and graceful painting you've done of Dick. Congratulations. That portrait of Malo is turning out lovely too. I hope you'll post the final soon.

    Great, great stuff. I love your way of sketching but I'd be curious to see more developed drawings of yours. Are these 5, 10 minute poses? You give a good sense of what the whole figure is doing - setting the pose. Continue to wow us please

    Oruhito, Thank you Oruhito - I'll either post finished here or on my site - probably on my site though. I have 8 or so paintings in progress, but should be done soon.

    Kevinwueste, Thanks. I studied with a lot of people at the Academy. It wasn't until I graduated and studied with Glenn Orbik at CAI in Westlake that I got a grasp on the figure - though I still have long to go. I suggest going to lots of workshops (Lee Ballard may still run one - it's a good one) , study with Yan, Wu, and Chuck Pyle if you can,but learn how to construct the figure before getting into any of the techniques at the Academy.

    Really nice drawings

    At first I thought you were Henry Yan hehe, your charcoal drawings look very much like his. I noticed cus I recently had a look through his book: http://www.amazon.com/Henry-Yans-Fig.../dp/1427610231
