    Figure and Head studies in charcoal, graphite, pen and paint..

    Time to start posting figure work here - really and not in the sketchbook area ( with a few exceptions).. most of these are from life with a few master copies thrown in ( ZM Wu, Blohkin and Glen O)!

    UUUUUM

    UUUUUM, I think you do belong here.

    Glad to see you in the Fine Arts area. Please update me on your upcoming studies. I heard good things about your work from people at CAI. Your work is really consistent and sensitive - two things that are hard to achieve in figure drawing.

    Please update often if you can!

    Thanks Bill very much for the kind words! I have a LONG way to go..
    Hope - I will try ! I'm struggling with form values and casts and cores ( and the relative values of things right now.. ).. CAI - i KNEW it - a bunch of spies :-) oh yeah it's great with Mark who draws beautifully, Glen and Esmerelda there.. and THEN Greg Pro will show up and knock out some kick-@** drawing! but it's a good atmosphere.. Glen gives me no end of s.... but I deserve it, mostly!
    Andreasm - thanks - i'm sure there are proportion things with gesture drawings .. ..don't tend to have a chance to site-size in 5-20 minutes!! there's a good quote by Ingres about this which escapes me - oh well!

    Rockwell's Neighbors: studies in charcoal

    new things to post soon - but here are some fun doodles ( head studies) .. thinking about shadow shapes and edges.. Rockwell's charcoals are masterful! all from photos ( not from his drawings).. freehand ( of course) on smooth newsprint. 4b charcoal pencil and wolffs carbon..

    Kevin,

    These are beautiful Rockwell studies... Were the studies themselves originally in charcoal? And which book did you use as reference? I could not recognize it from the picture.

    Thanks!
    Brenno.

    Great Rockwell studies. In your first post, the last color study was impressive. Keep on inspiring!

    wow! thank you courtyard, alexxx!
    bkkm - these are from Rockwell's book: "How I Make a Picture" and are all from his reference photos for different paintings ( a few are refs that he used for his "gossips" painting which is in the picture above..). I kind of got on a tear with doing these on one sheet after seeing his own charcoal work which is pretty fabulous. The one boy in the upper left is a copy of a portion of one of his paintings.. though I had to work it a bit more to make it say something in black and white vs color! All free hand with only a quick measure here and there and tilts sorted..
    - thanks bigjoee!
    GriNGo - thank you .. I was pleased w/that too.. it is a master copy.. I hope my own work can approach that with much more hard work!!

    Below are two alla prima paintings in oil from this last week. about 3 hours each on canva-paper which feels nice but don't be mean to it or it will shred! 12 x 16..

    The color on these last two is quite nice, but I particularly like the second one. Keep up the good work!
