A gift for a friend
Last question, when are you swinging back out to Seattle?
Undertow- Hi Mike, I'm out of school at the moment, I graduated in December. The recent posts have been about me keeping busy while I waited to hear back from grad schools. I'm going to be moving up to New Hampshire at the end of June to go to school there. My focus is just painting and drawing in general.... landscape, cityscape, interiors, still life, and figure work. A lot of times what I paint is dictated by the weather, when it's cold out I work inside, become much more of a studio painter, working much more from reference. I keep coming back to the cityscapes, but I like it all though, some things are more successful than others, but I still do them. I haven't had access to a model as much out here so that's why I don't do as much of that on a regular basis. Porportion is less of a concern than capturing the character of the person or persons, I definitely think about it, but I'm more concerned with how it feels. Hope that makes sense.
Oh, Seattle might be a while, I was there in August for a long weekend for a wedding, but I didn't have time to see anyone really. Hopefully soon, but I can't promise anything. I miss it a lot though.
Clochette- Merci Beaucoup! Thanks for dropping in. Keep up the great work in your book.
A couple from the park today

A riff off a William Eggleston photo.
hey Bojee - love the paintings. Especially this one:
All the best,
The colors in these are great - so subtle but still eye-catching. I love the compositions, too. They all command a lot of focus and evoke a mood in some way.
Oregano- Shane, thanks buddy!
Frogisis- Thank you, much appreciated
A new one, Horizon Line

very enjoyable - I like that Horizon line pic i think you have a nice knack of capturing contour with subtle shades.
Diggin' the Ditch?
ditchman - Thanks dude.
A couple more from the park
Another one from the park
Clochette- Nah, not mine, just a piece from ref. Thank you though.
A new one
haven't been here in a while, I LOVE well made hands,
Last one has a very good sense of form
maxetormer- Luis, thanks my friend.
Another one from the park, wanted to do more but I was getting eaten up by the bugs.
Ahh, you keep rocking. Love your speedpaints. The environment speedies are all very nice, but some of the faces lack freedom. Maybe the pencil drawing is keeping you too much inside those contours. It would be nice to see the looseness in the faces just like in the environments. It may be just a preference thing though, so don't take this as crit, but rather a suggestion.
I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the work of Zhuzhu. But still HERE's a link. A lot can be learned from him.
razz- I hear you bro, might also show how into them I am. The landscapes are from life, and the heads are from ref, and I think I have a different response to something that's right in front of me. I appreciate the thoughts.
2 more, Ink tonight
