    Wonderful work. Your finished drawings are really strong - plus you can sketch really well: usually most people have one or the other

    These are solid studies. Please keep posting.

    And if I'm not mistaken, I see Orbik's influence written all over these. You wouldn't happen to have studied at the California Art Institute... ?

    You guessed it!

    Sfa - Yep - I studied with Glenn Orbik for close to a year. The information he passed along was priceless. Before working with Glenn i spend years at the Academy in SF (trying) to learn how to draw, but not getting solid - consistent information - though the Academy has some amazing teachers, they don't have a class like Glenn's that teaches abstractions and how to design shapes.


    Doonboy - Thank you, no I studied at the Academy in SF and with Glenn Orbik at CAI. I continue to go to workshops weekly.

    Farsh , Oruhito, Serpian, Tenna _mom, Mentler, Nightblue, Frank, Saa , Smith - Thank you for the kind words. I'll try to post more soon.

    Those are some of the best head studies I've seen in a long while.

    I think I kinda understand what you say about designing shapes. When I look at those head studies, I see that you're making the 3d form more apparent by looking for the planes, shadow shapes, etc. Another term I've heard artists use is "conceptualizing the form".

    i love people it when people can effectively use such sharp, straight lines in their figures .. and you do this so very well. Your angles are fantastic. Very opposite of my style and it makes me jealous when i try to emulate this style because it is much harder than it seems. Fantastic work.

    !Drawings from past students of CAI and Fred Fixler!

    Thank you for kind remarks: VincentGordan, Kingshaj, Slipp3ry, Dizon.

    Below are drawings from past students and artists, Not Me!! from CAI, some of the quick poses are from 1949 on through the 70's and 80's.

    I know some of these quick poses are James Bama, and Fred Fixler. Anyone in Southern California wanting to learn how to draw the figure should spend some time with Glenn Orbik at CAI in Westlake. The instruction is solid and consistent. I highly recommend them. They have hundreds of drawings on the walls for students to study.

    What a great thread! Your stylization and simplification in the paintings is fantastic, and your figure studies are all top-notch. Very solid stuff. 5 stars from me...

    Your confidence with oil is really quite stunning. I putter around for long times trying to decide whether my gray is the "right gray" and then once I find it I blend compulsively. Thank you for posting these, they're a complete pleasure to look at.

    I feel like, in your still lives, I can see not only the objects but also the entire mood of the room: where the light comes from, how strong it is, what sort of light it is, and this makes the work strongly atmospheric. Similarly with the landscape, the choice of much more muted tones captures exactly the feeling of the light. Ok, I am rambling now in my adoration, but, please, post more paintings if you can.

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

    Solid group of life studies. I am a big fan of letting your marks show, you pull it off quite well, especially in your paintings.
