Thanks for the comment Kevin, I do see what your saying... when I really start from the basics the drawing turns out 250% better. Perhaps I'm a little afraid of working this way when I'm out and about drawing, because they could move at any time! Like what was said I am focusing more on there features it's a comfort zone, ill try breaking it =)
Can't wait to see more of your stuff =P
Thanks for letting me know about Glenn Orbik, he's a really talented artist! Haha loved his quote.
a few new paintings - a longer two class pose ( gregory) from clothed figure class and two quick studies the more paint-blob-ish one is 25 minutes and the woman from the .. back ? - is 45 mins or so.. both of those were part of an "extreme color" approach.. so things are a bit pushed.. but the results ? well I think ok.. still have a lot about color harmony to figure out!!!
thanks everyone for your kind words!!
