    kevinwueste- I love the direction your work is headed too. You have some incredible skills! Keep up the great work!

    Praemium- Thanks for the kind words. I'll try to keep posting as often as I can.

    maldrin- Thank you!

    dpaint- Thanks!

    kojot- I'll try to take some process shots. Thanks for the comment.

    AL3K- The change from acrylics to oils has been a challenge. I enjoyed the quick dry time of acrylics which allowed an impatient painter like myself to make quick changes. With oils it can be hard to keep them looking fresh. If that makes sense? Thanks for the comment.

    The portrait is a 1 hour oil sketch of an artist who was kind enough to pose when the model didn't show for the portrait session at the co-op. The other is a 15 minute watercolor sketch.

    Thanks for looking!

    Sorry for the terrible process shots of this painting. I kept forgetting to stop and take photos of the different stages.

    Remarkable work. Fluid and fresh, and you've captured a lot of character.

    Please show us some more of your watercolour work.

    Thank you for sharing.

    mabdo- Thank you.

    The Nuge- Thanks for the nice comment.

    F!END- Your doing some really amazing work! Thanks for the kind words!


    I haven't had many opportunities to paint long poses lately. So I'm trying to do the best I can with shorter poses. I'm really enjoying the challenge of painting so quickly.

    These are all 30 minute oil sketches

    Great work in here.
    I love the "greys" in that female standing pose from post 98.

    Craig D - Thanks!

    Here's a new oil sketch. Lately I've been painting without any paint thinner. And I'm enjoying the results.

    Thanks Kevin. It's a 5 hour painting - it's 16"x20" - and this one was painted from a photo I had taken. My goal was to try and keep the freshness of an oil sketch. But create a finished piece. There was a beautiful gesture in the tilt of her head that I missed. Maybe I'll try and work up another one and see if I can capture that gesture this one's missing.

    Nice color harmony in the last one. And those 30 min gestures- they make me happy

    F!END - Thank you!

    Eva K - Thanks for the comment. I work on a variety of canvas sizes - ranging from 9"x12" to 16"x20". Most of the portrait sketches are 12" x 16".


    This oil sketch was done from life - and was painted in 1 hour.

    Kevin- Thanks! I'm glad the lighting and forms come through. At first I thought maybe I had him to lit. But overall I'm happy with the feeling it has. Thanks for the comment.

    Suhas Manjrekar- Thank you! And thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Schylardipre- Thanks!


    Here's a new oil sketch with some process shots if anyone is interested.

    prsnsweeney-Thanks for the comment! I'd have to say I enjoy the initial block in the most. And as you can tell many of my paintings kind of stay in that unfinished state. There's a beautiful gesture and life that you get in those early stages. I also like that in those early stages your still a bit unsure where the painting is headed. And I find that exciting!


    The model for the sketch below was amazing. She held this pose for about 2 hours with minimal breaks.

    Awesome work i love your style and the way you use the brush.Some of them look unfinished but maybe that's the idea.

    Random_Hobo- Thanks for the comment! I hope you continue to stop by to see what I'm up to.

    Here's two paintings of my cat. She's the only available model I have to paint from at the moment.
