Finished painting plus sneak peak of a new one--update 7-3-10
Ok, a couple of people at the sf workshop were getting on my case because I don't post much artwork.
So I'll try to post a few things here. Hopefully I can keep adding to it.
I did this a couple of weeks ago.
Nupastel on coldpress watercolor paper.
People seemed to like this drawing from my portfolio.
Nupastel on newsprint.
This is an old image that I did when I was in school.
I had it kicking around so I threw it in my portfolio--mostly for myself so I could think about the differences between the way I drew then and the way I draw now.
Nupastel on vellum.
I think back then, I could give the appearance of good structure, but I wasn't really thinking about it.
I was just drawing what was in front of me.
Now, I'm really interested in structure and often prefer my structural drawings over my more rendered stuff.

Cool stuff. They have a nice feeling of "weight" to them. Your rendering is way better than mine so I can't crit that - the last guy there has really nice values IMO.
For some reason the first woman's stomach looks more like cloth than folds of flesh, I can't really figure out why ... maybe it's just my screwed up brain
Keep it up!
PS. Were you one of the 14 who had dinner at that crazy Chinese restaurant with the rotating table, the night before the workshop? I think I was sitting a couple of people left of you.
cool civilwar soldier. The lower half of the face and the cloth is very nice.
I remember watching over your should while you were doing some life drawing. Then you left. Ron walked over, picked up Foster's sketchbook and after finishing looking at it, saw your spot open, shrugged and sat down and started drawing.
emily, these are really nice, especially the first of the three. you have a very good understanding of value shapes, and this makes your drawings really POP. keep posting more and i'll keep checking.
