    These are lovely! The marks are direct and the colors are so lively! Particularly the first and second. I have to run now, but will post a more elaborate critique later.

    Yeah, so, basically, I think that your mark making is really pretty dynamic and praise worthy. The sweep of the dress in the first piece and the modeling of the breasts, legs and feet is particularly nice. And in the second figure the legs are again a strong point, colors play off each other well, there's really a feast for the eyes as far as contrast and gradient is concerned. Also, in the first piece, the black conte plays really well with the white spaces that you've left.

    However, if you'll forgive me for saying so, I feel like sometimes your application of a large number of variant marks feels slightly overworked. I think if you could find large areas of light or shadow to mass in then that would provide a more solid base for these strong, experimental marks.

    I love your murals and wish I had as many nice pieces myself.


    1) What materials do you use? Maybe a little photograph?

    Esp #2 above, girl on chair? Brand and color of paper? Pastels ?


    Thanks, I love to try out all types of materials.


    2) its like two people draw some of your murals one is a master of anatomy but in some places you have errors with arms and hands... Fix those and your work will be master pieces. Anatomy in general is the only thing holding you back a little. Heads the wrong size, body parts slightly off, etc.


    A)I am new at this myself but this is what masters always recommend
    2 minute gesture sketches, from life, ref, and imagination. Hours and hours a day. Youtube channels are good for nude video poses from models.


    B) I dont think I saw any master copies but look at people like rubens especially for heads. Draw heads not faces.

    Littlebit thanks for your reply. Looks like I only have one figurative mural here done very quickly 15 days for an 8' by 28' in acrylics with a day and a half to clear coat it which makes the the painting 13 days. So some things are not prefect more time would have helped but that was not the game I was playing. In #2 above I found some black paper at Goodwill it does not have good tooth or weight but managed a nice impression due to model.
    In regards to anatomy it is important but not essential to art making. Distortions can have a place also. Many of these are quick sketches which would be gestures.
    You have good expression and a playfulness in your work that is gold learning anatomy,composition color, balance, etc. I will post some more murals.
