    Question Hi Emily...

    In your profile, you say that you are studying with Bill Whitaker. In what way are you studying with him? Hmm...that didn't make much sense. Are you taking classes? Where?

    I love your work!

    Emily,

    just a quick reply on the last girl painting. You had it setup so the first picture was in progress, second was finished and third was close up of the finished one. When I looked at the post and looked the first image I thought it was really cool but maybe a bit unfinished looking but thought maybe you meant to leave it that way(didn't read anything just looked at the pictures). Then I slowly scrolled down and saw the next picture(finished one) and thought it was the reference picture After reading the description and realizing it wasn't a photo but the actual painting I pretty much jumped out of my chair!!!! Such a great work! Hard work sure pays off! Keep at it Emily!

    Emily works alongside me in my studio three days a week. Her art seems to be driving her toward super delicacy and extremely sensitive finish. We aren’t exactly in charge of the direction our art takes us. However, we know our art resides at the extreme frontier outpost of our talent. If we don’t stretch ourselves, we grow bored with what we do. If we don’t knock ourselves out to exceed our natural abilities, we never find our art.

    I expect that Emily will soon have a new painting to show here. Sooner or later she will finally make a finish on her current painting project. It’s been fascinating to watch her work.

    I remember you telling Annie and I to let our art lead us. That statement has helped me keep focus and also not to be ashamed of what I do and how I like to do it. As long as I'm being honest it will resonate with others. Everyone listen to Bill.

    Emily you are doing a fantastic job. We are all looking forward to your next update! Rock solid. Keep it up girl!

    I wish I could have an Emily G instead of a Nikon... your paintings are better than photos will ever be. Beautiful work... and it's crazy to think you have the rest of all time to improve... blows my mind.

    Only the heart intrinsically noble can succeed...

    Hello, everyone. I have a little teaser for you. This painting is almost finished--I brought it with me to ComicCon so some people have already got to see it.

    VampireHungerStrike—Thank you!
    Jessica Hook—Thank you so much. I’m so glad you like it.
    GriNGo—Thanks.
    Molly—Thank you, dear!
    Pritchetty—Thank you! I took a few head painting classes while I was in college.

    Gulzaar—Thank you. Yes, I have done some oil portraits before. I got my basic oil painting training while I was in college.
    Aesir—Thanks! I used a couple small brushes for the details.
    Cirrus—Thank you.
    Poise—Thank you Tiff. The surface is masonite, which I primed with gesso and then sanded.
    Hp—Thanks, other Emily. My intention with the shoulders was to have very soft edges that blended into the background a bit. But if it looks unfinished, that is definitely something I want to be aware of.

    Craig D—Thanks, Craig. And thanks for your input on the shoulder as well.
    Dr.Satan—Lol, thank you. I love to paint that area, too.
    RandAlThor—Thank you.
    DannySketch—Thanks, Danny!
    Samantha—Thanks!

    Maerrick—Oh, thank you.
    Stalsby—Yes, I feel very lucky.
    HunterKiller—thanks. I’m glad that was helpful to you.
    Komik[S]—thanks!
    Chermilla—thank you. I paint rather thinly, and I also blend with a soft, dry watercolor brush. That helps keep the surface smooth.

    Coldrun—haha, thanks. Use odorless mineral spirits!
    Towarlock—Thank you.
    DANKA—thanks! I have something new to post coming up soon. Take up painting again—it’s fun.
    Espenboi—thank you.
    AsaB—Oh, thank you so much.

    EricElwell—thank you!
    Lone Wolf—thanks.
    SamsonsReaper—thanks. The later stuff is some non-study stuff.
    Selfu—hehe, thanks for stopping by!
    Cakeypigdog—thanks!

    FlameDragon—I sharpen my pencil into a really long point with a razor blade. And I also draw with the side of the pencil, so that preserves the point longer. You can see some pics of how I do it in this thread:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...6&postcount=15
    Jesse Draper—it’s been so fun painting with you, Jesse. Stop by the studio for a visit!
    Rico Rodriguez—thank you. No, I do not use a blender in my pencil drawings. I just use the side of my pencil and stroke very lightly. I also fill in any little white spaces with the point of my pencil.
    Flesheater—well, thank you!
    MindCandyMan—Thanks, Jon!

    Blue Severin—thanks so much. I hope all it going well with you.
    Cotron—thanks so much, Cody. I’m glad you like the color palette pics.
    Jake Kobrin—Thank you. Yes, Bill’s a great teacher! Right now I am pursuing the fine art path—but I am still open to doing other things if they come along.
    The best way to learn oils, I think, is to start with a limited palette. I would use the “Zorn palette,” which is white, yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, and black. Use your black as a blue and you have the three primary colors. This was how I learned to paint and it taught me how to mix my colors.
    I do remember checking you in at the workshop.
    Bernbaum—Oh, thanks so much. I feel flattered that you signed up to leave me a comment.
    Teena_mom—thank you!

    ArtznCraphs—thanks. I have always used alizarin crimson on my palette. I mix it with black and white to create a purple which I just love to use. The red oxide replaces the burnt sienna—I have not used burnt sienna much, but I like the dark reddishness of the red oxide.
    Yes, we have gone over the transparent shadows a bit. I am using some of it in my next painting.
    Matejkovacic—thank you!
    Coinpurse—thanks!
    Iatriki—thank you.
    Webzu—thanks so much.

    Destinyapocalypse—thanks!
    Nixon—thanks! I haven’t heard from you in awhile. What are you up to?
    Twisted Synapses—hehe, awesome.
    Maestro Andres—Oh, thanks so much. I’m glad you liked them.
    Xnhan00—thanks!

    DXIANSON—I am taking private lessons from him at his studio.
    DoomSketcher—thank you!
    Brentos—thanks so much.
    Dark eagle—hehe, we don’t want that now! Thanks.
    Aspenboy—oh dear. Stay alive! And thanks.

    King Kobra—thank you.
    YuZa—hehe, I loved reading about your reaction. Thank you!
    William Whitaker—thanks for dropping by, Bill.
    MindCandyMan—Thanks so much, Jon. Yeah, that is what Bill says to me all the time as well. I have a teaser for now and an update coming soon.
    DanielC—it was great meeting you, too! Sorry I introduced myself to you twice—how embarrassing.
    IanE—Wow, that statement means a lot to me. When people see realism, they often say, “Why don’t you just take a photo?” My goal is to make paintings that are better than photos, so the fact that you see that in my work really means a lot.

    Thanks so much everyone for all the kind words! Expect the finished painting soon.

    woah, my jaw literally just dropped, you are truly one of the greatest artists i've seen in quite some time, your paintings are mind blowing. the way you render is through the roof, and you seem to be very versatile in traditional mediums which is very good, have you ever thought of trying your hand out in any digital stuff? i think if you used a program like painter you could do some truly amazing pieces. well i'm definitely inspired by you very much so all i can really ask is that you continue posting because i can't wait to see more.

    To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.

    That looks like it hardly qualifies as a sketch. ;\

    Looking at your work makes me miss real painting dearly.

    I know your teacher is proud and maybe even amazed (a little jealous too??hee hee)!! Stunning work and I love that you paint normal looking people in normal cloths -- they are beyond beauty these pieces!

    You look like a Jedi at that easel.
    I wish I had known you were in San Diego, I would have definitely stopped by to say hello and check out the painting. Totally jealous of the skills.

    Just out of curiosity, when you were in college did you focus your studies primarily on the visual arts, or did you emphasize in something else and then jump ship afterwards? I'm wondering, because I'd really like to make a transition, but I feel like I've been out of school for so long, that I'm not really sure how to fall back into things. I’ve been camping out in various sketchbooks, trying to learn more about the different methods and practices that people use, but I’m just continually blown away by the quality of work in some of these threads. I was checking out the Watts demos at the Con, and am totally kicking myself that I didn’t realize the atelier was in Encinitas, and only like 20 minutes from my house. All this time I thought it was in Watts Los Angeles, what a dunce. Now though, it looks like I’ll either be moving back to the Bay Area, (or possibly to Coeur D'Alene in Idaho for a while, depending on whether my girlfriend’s parents can work out their mortgage) so I’m trying not make too many plans. I wanted to ask though, do you have any recommendations for like a summer project, or series of exercises, that might help me transition from working in graphite to working in oils? I took this intro class at City College last semester, and one of the things the prof. said to me at the end of the term was that I was trying paint with the pencil, and that I should just start learning how to use oils now, before I drive myself crazy.

    I’m really just in awe of the work here, so I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Any more advice on a good way to start? I searched the Zorn palette and came up with some great stuff.

    Thanks again for sharing your work and ideas with us.

    I attended Whitaker's talk at BYU a little while back. I enjoyed it a lot. I think some of your drawings/paintings were shown in the presentation. Nice stuff. I attend Kamille Corry's School in Salt Lake City, She is a good friend of Bills.
