I have been away over the last 6 months, but since being back I have found my one true love, oil paints. Even beginning to like the smell of turp, anyway these paintings are to help me integrate into using oils. More updates on there way.

These are great!! I espically like the third one.
crit me! = )
my art blog:
sorry would of updated earlier but my computer had a spot of bother with a virus so I had to reformat everything, fun!
These are a few from a real cheap red travel journel I took round australia with me. Not the greatest peice I have ever done but I didnt want to not draw for 6 months.
And no Im not this angry in real life
I really need to get off my arse and do more work like this. Great work on the studies, I think you have good skills in form and shadow. One thing I love to see with this sort of work is the expressionistic brush strokes that you have done in the top set of studies.
Real nice work man. Good to see you're all analog.
I share your passion for oil painting. Just wanted you to know I am enjoying your sb.
A few more studies- i always seem to do onions and banannas- probably becasue they are cheap
Quick drawing before an oil study. rushed the shadow on this, had to dash pretty quickly- not an excuse but there we are.
Ahh now life drawing, do it twice a week and really loving it
my first tries- 20 minutes
first two hour sess- real good fun but found so many mistakes when I finished
second two hour, this time i was sitting in on a class so wasnt instructed in anyway= lots of mistakes and anatomy problems.
third two hour- an improvement I think (although the model kept getting cramps and so the hand and feet postion changed about 5 times)
I have alwasy been doing a few barque plates and bridgman studies, which are begining to help me see forms and shapes of muscles

Thanks for the warm words everyone, a two hour session ranging from 20 minutes donw to 5.
i digg these studies, you have inpsierd me do studys more, i will look forward for more updates
A cupid study from douleur d'amour, 5ish hours
another bouguereau study in progress, these paitnings are great for studying.
And an etching of said drawing, really enjoyed the process.
Drawings from a life drawing a few weeks ago- the model I guess new spent more time moving than staying still, very annoying.
And last weeks, it was a two hour but because I was working small I moved onto tone before others although it wasnt great to be honest.
Well its been a very long time so i figure an update is needed
A few studies,
A Self portrait, pushing the idea of chiaroscuro further than I normally do
15 minute shadow study
Line drawing as the lighting is always bad in class
another few line drawings
Been busy with my last term of college atm, and they has finished life drawing now which really sucks, so alot more master studies are needed me thinks.
A year and 10 days since I updated and here is waht I have to show for it.
Yer I know right, thats what I thought but no its not a finished master piece, yet. HAh what a fun time I have typing by myself, anywho thought I would update this thread now Im getting into painting alot more
Taken about 3-4 hours so far, not sure where Im going to take it yet
I hope that with your last painting, you didn't outline it in black oil paint before coloring.
If you did, I hope you learned your lesson.
Visit my sketchbook here
thought i would update this thread, pretty quiet in here.
cast, charcoal on fabriano ingres
hand cast from the atelier and a venus de milo cast half finished,

Your shading has improved a lot from the beginning of the thread.
