These are just some of the small studies I've been working on lately. Some landscapes from Rome and Ireland in oils. I've had this little tube of Blockx Lapis Lazuli for a long time and I finally busted it out for that Roman sky. It seemed as good a time as any to finally use it. (I'm always saving my expensive art materials for "the right time" since I don't want to waste them. But, I've been getting better about just making myself use them, since I could get hit by a bus or something tomorrow.)
Also, a little Acrylic figure sketch. The last is a self portrait in oils I just started.
