    View from my parents bedroom, the painting took about 2 hours, so difficult to paint landscapes from life. I went in way to early with textures as well.

    Just a little Sargent study, about an hour in so far.
    Colours are surprising easier to get closer to or correct when you squint, I honestly didn't think it would work.
    I actually skipped the under drawing and just blocked in big abstract shapes, hasn't turned out too bad so far.

    Looking god man. The structural anatomy studies are impressive and your latest sargent study seems to be coming along really nicely.

    Regarding your sphere studies in post #44, here's some observations.

    Keep those light and shadow values separate. Right now it looks like the reflected light is very close to the diffuse higlight. Always keep the reflected light lower in value than any of the values in light.
    Also remember where the reflected light is coming from. The darker the surface the less intense the reflected light is. This is also important in regards of the darkness of the shadow. The only reason the dark side of the sphere isn't pitch black is because there's an object near it that bounces light to it. Darker the surface that is bouncing the light, the darker the shadow.

    Keep up the good work

    The anatomy studies are looking good,so are the portraits but you can't leave them like that,finish them up and after that compare them with the originals and see what needs restated.
    With a little more practice I think your line work will get very good and you seem to be progressing at a fast pace.Good luck!

    Ville_S:Thanks for stopping by and for the crit, love your work.
    I see what you mean and thanks for information on the reflective light, the more I look at reference I see my mistake, I'll definitely work on it more.
    Kriss_Kringle:Cheers! Yeah I know what you mean,
    it's something I'm really struggling to fix at the minute,
    I think it's because I go slightly to hard with the base drawing before details, so I can't get rid of them so easy, something I'll also have to work on.
    KlineCreative:Thanks for the kind words and encouragement,
    no I don't unfortunately, I had a look at the academy after I read your comment, it looks like a wonderful place to study,
    shame I don't live in America hah.

    Anyway not much of an update, I've got doctors appointments and an essay to finish for college, I'll finish up the Sargent study and get some anatomy studies down over the weekend, so I'll leave you with a Self Portrait in progress.

    Veshkau:Thanks for stopping by man, love your work!

    Anyway yeah, sorry for the lack of updates, been bombarded with college work and generally just life, I have an operation on Wednesday for Achalasia, which I've been suffering from for a while now, not nice but after that I will really push out some more work to post on here.

    Just some portraits of my friends working for my final project, trying to draw the viewer in by inviting them into the world of a fine art student, I made some custom brushes from materials from our studio which I will be using later this week if I'm well enough! but yeah enough chatter, hope to post more frequently.

    Completed portrait of Sam, A2 charcoal paper crop.

    Finally completed the portrait of Anna, converted this to monochrome in PS so the tones are more distinctive.
