    It's been awhile since i been here.

    Each time i come here, the more i am encourage back to still life. I hope you would take a look at my sketchbook and give a little advice on my work. Good or bad, as long as it something to kick the ball out of the gutter.

    Overall, I like the studies. Thanks for posting I'm sure to learn something with each drawing.

    im curious in your oil sketches do you usually draw things out with your charcoal first or just dive straight in with the paint?

    im going to try doing oil sketches and wet on wet oil due to my teachers yelling at me for taking too long on paintings, so tyring the quicker approach hehe Great work though!

    what kind of brush are you using to blend? Does that mean the stick part of it or you cut the bristles to resemble a point?

    I'm definitely subscribing to this. It's very refreshing to see some traditional work too with all of the digital that goes on nowadays. I have nothing wrong with digital, it's just really nice to see some amazing traditional work also =) .. absolutely gorgeous.

    Inspiring work Raileyh - I wish I lived in So-Cal! The drawing of Meredith and the current portrait are beautiful. Thanks for sharing your work and process.

    Wow Hope,

    The last drawing is so lush.
    You are one incredibly skilled and talented gal.
    I want to press my face against the screen to see the paper up close!!!

    Would you mind posting a close-up of a section of the face?

    My clavicle is bigger than my hand and my hand barely reaches above my eyebrows. Maybe those proportions are "ideal"?
    I don't know! You should always take into consideration your horizon - that is what is going to create your REAL proportions - those are nice guidelines though.
    I love your stuff!! Reminds me of that artist that did the asian man tutorial (MAYBE THAT WAS YOU??? - the style is nearly exact).

    I love the 3rd one, it seems to have little but suggest so much!!! Definitely a good one - the tones appear perfectly balanced.

    Good work!!!
    I think you should try a background and figure from your imagination. Something dramatic, possibly dreamy!!

    beautiful work raileyh, absolutely gorgeous

    can't wait to see where you take your work, and or, where it takes you; who you become.
    by which i don't mean that you are not already who you say you are... but that you might become more of it, and that it'll be interesting to see !

    This is based on Frank Reilly Method.
    There are books out by Jack Faragasso, Angelo Grado, Doug Higgins. THe Faragasso and Higgins books are the easiest to find. Higgins book is online for free

    Oil Sketch of Kaleeka

    Mydrako - Thank you for the help. I tend to finish things eventually....

    kevinwueste - It was so much fun having you attend my workshop!! Keep me posted when you're in town......and want a gig!!

    l0stinth0ughts - Thank you. Keep up the studying.

    SweetPea - Oil sketches tend to be all in oil. It's a great way to learn the fundamentals and to force yourself into making decisions before there's time to mess it up.

    ALEXANDRE da Vinci - Thanks

    Main Loop - What's up! I haven't seen you in years. I use the stick end over the more heavier areas of charcoal and a hard vine or a very hard graphite over the lighter half tones.

    ParanoiaArtist - Thanks so much!

    Jonn - Moleskins are for sketching and maybe gouache or other water mediums. The last drawing is on everyday strathmore charcoal paper. It's a 20 - 30 hour drawing - I do sell my drawings. I'm usually contacted through my website.

    hotha - Thanks. Send me an email sometime through my website.

    JeffX99 - Thanks Jeff. My drawings help me paint better. They go hand in hand.

    mathelda - Thank you

    AztcFireFlower - Thanks. I'll see if I can get a better shot. My camera sucks!

    Memo213 - Thanks. The handouts are generalized, of course, most humans are not ideal. It's just a starting point to begin the learning process.

    DANKA - Thank you

    Whirly - Thanks

    teddy007kong - Thank you too!

    Helioth - Thank you so much. I'm just trying to develop to the best of my abilities in this life. Lots of work to do!

    prufrock27 - hello miss student!! I will I will jeesh!

    F!END - I second you get your cast drawing done!! see what ya'll started.

    pauloricardo - Thanks. I'll get a few up. I'm currently working in my studio on a completely different body of work so I'm not doing too many studies.

    Whirly - That's funny! It's sometimes referred to the Reilly method. Many artists use it to simplify. It's not a set method. All it really refers to is to find ways to simplify and draw the figure with continuity.

    Pigeonkill - Thank you so much

    prsnsweeney - Thanks. It's all about learning and getting on to the next stage.

    soros - Thank you. I don't keep a separate sketchbook. I just use this thread to post most of my informal learning and demos.

    Ikage - Thank you so much

    here's a demo I did from life - Oil Sketch of Kaleeka
