    Watts Students

    A few buddies at Watts Atelier and I have been discussing putting a thread up together and so here it is.

    My name is Ryan and I will start with a few drawings/paintings I have done in the last few months, and hopefully a few of my buddies will add to it in the near future. Thanks for any comments/critiques!

    hey nice stuff, clearly well drawn, you clearly know ur way with ur tools, what i would suggest is some more tonal variation, you seem to have large blocks of shadow, which really all blend like smoke to air (da vinci quote) so i would suggest more subtle variation in tone and darker values as well. Keep at it!

    Another Watts Student here

    Hey all,

    My name's Tom Babbey, and I'm one of Ryan's previously-mentioned buddies at Watts Atelier in southern California. I've been taking classes alongside Ryan for a few years, and thought I'd go ahead and show my work from class as well. There's a mix of Figure Drawings, gestures/portraits in oil and two studies at the end of the post(after Sargent and Elvgren).

    Thanks in advance for any crits/comments, and make sure to swing by and check out the school if you're ever in the San Diego area.

    Good things going down at Watts ! Ryan the 2nd drawing of the bearded man ( even on the super waffle-y side of that toned paper) is really wonderful
    -Tom the first male figure, the female portrait ( very Watt's -ish style ?) and the reclining nude figure are really great stuff !!
    Matt I like the first woman oil painting and the head studies.. all solid things by all of you but I hope it's ok to have picked out a few things that ( in one viewer's humble opinion rise above).. keep posting!

    Expect nothing less from people studying in watts.

    Ryan all ur stuff are so good. I especially like the reclining woman in the chinese dress. So simple shapes and good design, yet feel so complete.

    I love the recling nude by tom too. I like how u are able capture her expression so well.

    Matt i like how ur second painting is going. It looks not completed but i am sure it is heading the right direction.

    Keep them coming!
