    Not so good gestures and a portrait! My good friend Toussaint posed for a group of friends after school for 6 hours straight! Great pose, and great outfit which we needed to undo a bit to get it wild and messy.

    I have to say that I get very easily trapped
    in your sketchbook. I can look at this stuff
    for pretty much hours on end. Pretty damn
    impressive.

    I'm primarily a digital painter myself, and I'll
    probably stay that way all my life, but I like
    to paint with oils from time to time, every
    other day. I'm just wondering if you have
    any tips that you can give me, a rundown of
    what you do in every painting or something,
    since I have no idea what I'm doing. I don't
    really have anyone I know that paints
    professionally with oils, so I ask you.

    Thanks for sharing this stuff, I'll be looking forward to more!

    If you ever have any questions, or you want help, all you need to do is shoot me a message.
    Can't hurt, right?

    Great stuff ones again, your like a machine, like a painting factory

    2cent: it looks like your paint supports your subject, you study the subject and paint accordingly and you do it pretty darn well. Maybe it'll help you if you turn it around. Let the subject support(guide) the paint. like for example lucian freud tries to do, Rembrand didn't suck either.
    If this makes any sense Ramp it up!


    Love your posture studies, nice line weight.
    Thanks for the updates.

    Would really like to see the drawings in person, dood. You're the man with the plan.

    Toffers - I'm flattered by your comment but in no means am I a professional. I've only been doing this for 2 years so there's quite a lot I don't know. Also by the looks of it, you have a good feel for digital already, really. Keep focused on areas where you feel like you need to improve more than others. As I see it, that would be anatomy and proportions for your figures, everything else is coming along. I don't have a completely flat routine of the way I do things, but generally I love to tone the canvas and let it peek through, start out with either a color block in or more linear drawing, and then pick a spot where I can compare every stroke I make to. All the while thinking of the fundamentals, value, color, temperature, light source, form, edges, not in that particular order. One day I'll get some kind of amateur process together.

    Bakker - I know what you mean, I think that will come.

    John - And you have already. Will do.

    Have a few more portraits up as always. Those always get done at a steady rate with so many opportunities to paint people all week.

    1 -11 x 17, 3 hour alla prima. Same person as a fw weeks back, sans beard.

    2 - 9 x 12 (?), 6 hours over three days. Small portrait trying to capture a very cool, singular light source directly above.

    3 - 6 x 4, quick 2 hour color study of the next painting which is just a grisaille in raw umber that I should have spent more time on but only had about an hour.

    This is just tremendous work, your colour choices are quite stunning in the portraits, love how you've modelled the form with so few strokes in post#422...
    Thanks for posting, and looking forward to more

    Hey Adam you know I am a big fan and enjoy all your updates. I really like the feel of the cool light you captured in the ladies portrait. Has a wonderful sense of stillness about.

    What expressive drawings, I really have to work towards your level as they look fab. Beautiful colours in the portrait as well.

    Thank you everyone, I'm really glad you all enjoy the last post! I've always wanted to kind of explore drawing this way, I think glimpses of it can be seen in the past, but I still struggle with everything very much so I'm trying really hard to get there. I have some more portraits! Like always! This time two alla primas and one glaze. I included the WIP shot just so you can see how not to glaze like an idiot. The underpainting was done with Raw Umber and White which I never tried before but I really like the look of it that way, probably why so many people start like that. I went way too dark so I spent some time trying to lighten that up. Also, drawing's way off, I wanted to get into glazing so instead of trying to get the drawing right, I tried to fix it later in the painting.

    towy - I won't, and pick it back up when you get a chance.

    Some more recent gestures from the Palette.

    Nice work. The quickness of your strokes and the impasto are excellent.

    Adam, these gestures are pretty great - there are many ways to "skin the cat" ...

    Thank you ezekrialase!

    Recent alla prima portraits, figures, a plein-air study, and a self portrait. I wanted to observe more of the space around me, the warm and cool lights from my friends who were all working on their own paintings. The plein air was done in a 4 hour session in Lincoln Park. There were small patches of snow still left over from the last snowstorm we had here sitting on the tree trunk reflecting in the high sun at noon.

    Wow I am loving your work! Your charcoal studies are great and your painting style is something to see. That's some bold brushwork there.

    Keep this up! If nothing else it's inspirational to guys like me who struggle to get their oil painting up to par.
