    Great work. I love the colors and the drawings, but I think you should improve more the watercolors.

    #241 the candle has a flat feeling, try to shade more along with the curve of the candle... if that makes any sense :p ?

    Wow wow superb stuff all around. I'm especially fond of your graphite sketches and life drawings.

    Question: for that tree piece, when you transitionned from b/w to colors did you start painting with colors form scratch or did you modify your initial sketch using overlays and start from there?

    Nothing but compliments from me. I would be really grateful if you could crit my work in my Skb.

    I like the way you do your figure studies with the loose lines. I also really like the colors in post #180.

    JakehC: Thanks!
    AJM: haha!
    Mr.Pryminista: I was thinking a block of tofu, but that works too!
    Woolichooks: Thanks!
    Tea of Doom: Thank you, For that tree painting, I did use overlay and color layers to lay down the initial colors, but that was about 20% of the coloring, the majority was painted on top of all the layers with a normal layer with straight color
    Elias Leonard: That makes total sense, I probably would do that if I weren't timing my painting. I try to limit myself to 1 hour for quick studies like that.
    Vlad74: TY!
    Setherial: Wow thanks, that really makes me feel good
    Cojac: I agree, I have a love hate relationship with watercolors :p I think for now though, i want to concentrate on digital, gouache, and acrylic.
    Mikko Voipo: Thank you! and thanks for the stars!

    I noticed my weakness has been painting overcast environments so here are two from yesterday and today. I think today's (bottom) is much more successful.
