    David I am just blown away by your work. A painter that knows the design of a modern artist but can render like a master. I would have to say I enjoy the drawings the most. I am interested in knowing how much of the drawing/painting is done from life. Whats the proportion. I am struggling with that in my own work at the moment. Just wondering how the masta does it. Thanks so much for sharing, its really inspirational!

    Once again sorry guys for my really late replies, been crazy with some new projects going on.

    Noro, Thanks!
    Gloominati, thanks also!
    Donalfall, thats an awesome compliment!!
    Nub, Art Zealot, Ariel, Darkside, 3blead, slyve, Mike B, dessin, Victor, icecold, Teude, DanielC, Thanks!
    Giorge, Not really after photo realism, Trying to make everything as real as possible, everything thing is life sized so that it will feel like they are in the room with the viewer. so there is a connection with the viewer. I guess sorta hyper realistic.
    Kischi, Red Squirrel, Pie, danlambert, Thanks!
    Konstruktion. Yoga is true, its like concentrating on seeing instead of breathing, I try to work with models as much as I can, but sometimes settle on photos, most pieces are pretty large so the photos are a necessary evil, but lots of studies from life. I guess the imagination part of my work is in the composing of the paintings, I usually have an idea first and usually get somewhat close to it. but always walk away thinking I can do way better.

    Art Addict, Thanks the workshop is going a lot of fun, I can't wait.
    Ego, A whole month long class is going to be very instructional. The last two week one I taught was awesome, the students got a ton out of it and this is double the amount of time. Its going to be really cool especially since my schedule is so crazy right now with the gallery and shows, I dont get to teach students for a prolonged amount of time.
    Sirkenneth, Great question, i dont really know the exact precentages, each painting is different based on the time frame I need the piece for or the availiblity of the model, as much is done from like as I can, but with some of the larger paintings its tough to get the model to sit as long as I need them for, or sometimes there are difficult hand positions, etc that I'll shoot with a camera. And usually the camera parts are the parts I like the least in the work cause I'm a shitty photographer, I'm hopefully going to take classes in it. Hope that helps.
    Extollere, I'll van go the ear to ya instead.
    Unknowm, Thanks!

    whew!

    Anyway, here are two quick videos that were filmed while I gave a demo in Portugal this summer. The demo was a quick hour and a half, wish I had more time. The first is a 3 camera Mash up of the footage, and the second is a straight ahead time lapse.

    very nice.

    I'm curious as to what that palette knife like thing is you used at the start of the drawing. It's putting down charcoal dust I imagine yeah? it looks like a great tool

    That charcoal portrait on the previous page is one of those pieces that on the one hand makes me want to go draw until my eyes bleed and my fingers are reduced to stumps, and on the other hand makes me want to go and drown myself in the kitchen sink because it seems like an unattainable level of awesomeness, that I must somehow reach... Congratulations on being awesome.



    My sketchbook is bigger than yours.

    I'm with Monsi - what was that stick you were using? A compressed-charcoal holder of some sort? Or a brush?

    Thanks everyone for checking out the vids and for the kind words. The plastic palette knife thingy that I use is a Pan Pastel tool, along with Black Pan Pastel, I love to use it in the quick block in stage, cause its like painting and is more fluid and expressive than a pencil point as well as being cleaner than a charcoal stick. Actually the pastel has an awesome satin finish as well and gets super dark easily as well as being erasable. I really dig the stuff. I'm working on some new pieces to post very soon. below is a quick flyer for a month long painting/drawing intensive class that I'm teaching in July of 2010 in Belgium. I believe that half of the 12 spots are filled and I thought it would be rad to have some CAers in the class. If anyone is interested they can email the organizer of the class at workshops@europeanworkshops.com

    I'm mildly in love with you. Don't tell my husband, lol. I wish I was at the level that I could take your class and not be struggling to keep up. Ugh I need more hours in the day to sketch and drool over CA threads like this one.

    Thanks guys, I would love to do a month or longer class every summer. I think it would be rad to teach in Italy or Spain next. Belgium is going to be cool cause the organizer rented a castle that has apts, so its going to be a real community for for the month.
