    Absolutely fantastic.
    The visible brush strokes and to see how you actually "sculpt" volume just made my day!

    Cheers to that,
    D

    Some very good work here.
    Some of those black shoe girl paintings really hit the button.
    But those empty studio paintings (particularly the first) are extra special.
    Alex Kanevsky is not far away - but you have something of your own going here and, well, stick with it!
    Bravo!

    Together with a small group of fellow-artists we invite and paint other artists for a three hour sit: two years ago we portraited writers/poets, last year musicians and this year we paint visiual-artists. Besides the great variety in faces most of them share nice stories and anekdotes.

    The last two are great! I like the transparent washes together with the opaque bits in the background.

    Still scapes

    Once and a while it is great to just wonder around the house and studio the look for objects to paint. The most simple thing can be like a great landscape.

    Solid knife work.

    I might suggest mixing up the size of your marks a bit. When you get this obviously textural with your work, there's a trap of having all of these thick, juicy marks be the same size. Kinda kills the effect as things get too monotonous.

    Keep at it, man. You're going in a great direction here.

    These are some fantastic studies. I'm loving your strong brush strokes.
    Keep it up.
