    AztcFireFlower excellent studies...but something which i have noticed from your work..hmm I think you are still thinking of concepts too much while you paint..or draw..you see..to critique you on your paintings..your thinking of matching tones and shapes and angles and geometries..constructions..but your are forgetting your painting an eye which is moist,a nose used to smell, a bumby fleshy mouth to eat, a hair so soft that feels like silk and a flesh so tender under bones that we humans are so weak for ..try to be more sensible to outlines..feel them....because i see too many straight lines ON those heads/figures..look at the masters not a single straight line, look at the human figure not a single one...one advice i heard from a good painter..You are what you paint.. if you paint hair become a hair..if you paint clouds become a cloud ,if you paint shadow become one..I now that in order to get to the level of feeling your concepts should be done thoughlessly (im talking about construction,perspective,anatomy,etc and the eye/hand coordination excellent ) but is nice to once in a while feel the subject, feel the weight of the mass..your not painting or drawing your are creating ...

    my new site, is crazy stuff but is my own space, I can say whatever!! hehe:

    I haven't uploaded anything here in a long time, so thought I'd submit this new one. (Some very nice works here, BTW.) This is acrylic on canvas 9x12". I haven't used acrylics in years, so I wanted to dust them off and remind myself how they work. It's from a collection of old photos of mine.

    Jrr-Beautifully and sensitively done. You really seem to get both color and form which is rare.

    Actually I see a lot of really competent life studies here.

    this was a painting sketch of a head of a friend..then after a few months i decided to rework it since someone wanted to buy it...(no model at this time)
    ,still the mouth is out of the axis of the head ,but is good...that this big error reminds me of always checking the drawing. the colors are a bit off because of the picture

    I did all of these from life as part of my first painting class. I loved that class. It was my first experience painting with oils. Also this thread rocks, so many inspiring pics...

    Solon - Great work.

    How do you guys feel about painting from secondary sources, like photographs?

    Im constantly told how important life drawing and painting is, but rarely have any opportunity to draw in a well lit and interesting environment. Do you guys think its acceptable?

    Stephen - beautiful! would love to see a better quality pic of that one.. doesnt look like the jpeg compression is doing it much justice

    Today I went to a life drawing workshop, it was the first time I ever used my tablet pc for a single 3-hr pose session.. I used a variety of programs to get to the point of where it looks pretty dang close to one of my oil paintings in the same amount of time..

    I felt he last painting was not ideal, too and I guess it because I made several things up by myself.


    I always enjoy your drawings and paintings.
    I am always thinking about doing digital painting from life but the first thing is the color temperature peoblem. Since the LCD and the setting has distinct light sourse, LCD is self-luminescence, and the color temperature is very high. The light source for model is usually tungsten light. The tungsten light's color temperature is very low. I believe it is a big challenge with tablet PC.

    Great job everyone! I thought Id start to contributre to this thread too.

    New to Oils, these are my third fourth and fith attempt at them. Im very timid when it comes to applying the paint, but im working on it!

    First a few Wips, 30x40, and these are LONG poses, Ive probably been working the middle one for 20-30 hours...

    The top one for about 6.
