    Great work! I especially like first and second ones. On the ballet dancers (last one), maybe it would help giving some lighter values to the sky outside the window, to make the background look less dull.
    And keep posting! that's a very nice start.

    thank you

    thank you guys for your comments. Yes, I agree, the one with the two dancers is somewhat dull, was my first try with two figures which did not really exist. There was one model alternating poses, but the space around is completely made-up, have never tried it until then, so hopefully will get better.

    thanks

    thanks, hunchback. I don't know if I really have very polished figure pieces that I would like to show, but if I think of one, I will post it.

    watercolor

    tried to do a watercolor, but got too dirty with it, not a true watercolor technique.

    another piece still in progress

    thank you, brinkman.

    here is a piece still in progress, need to fix some perspective issues. It's done in a class where the same model takes different poses in different outfits.

    this one went through a few changes, but the pose is over, so that's that.

    awesome stuff! I'm not saying your style is bad, in fact i like it, however perhaps you could include a study or two with hard edges and less loose then what you have? Well, your watercolors and oils are great! :>
