Hey Adam these are lovely. I really like the light on the man's face and the orange of the scarf. My favorite is the last one though, love the muted colours and soft feeling in this one. Can I ask what colours you are using?
Thanks Marian. I'm just using the palette I've used for a long time. Titanium White, Ivory Black, Lemon Yellow (rarely), Cadmium Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Terra Rosa (sometimes I'll use Venetian Red), Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Transparent Oxide Red, Cobalt Blue (sometimes), Ultramarine Blue, and Viridian.
Sometimes I'll switch on and off others like Sap Green or English Red, whatever I have in my box. But the above is my normal palette.
I did this palette knife still life a while back, still haven't gone back in and decided whether or not to diffuse the orange some more as it reads as a flat shape. Plus it's about half an inch thick with cad. orange, it'll probably never dry.
These really are nice dude, maybe a video demo pretty please?
Thanks Sony, Mane, Sean! Mane, video of me screwing up every painting over and over and over again? Nah. I take photos of a painting in stages once in a while for myself to document though.

I just realized I never actually answered your question about the saturation.
What I meant was that in some of your paintings there are some areas that drop in saturation quite a bit even though it doesn't really make sense.
like a leg with a grey patch on it or something of that nature.
Love the update from the 24th of October btw
tehmeh - You too man, thank you!
Alrap - Thank you Alrap!
Xelar - Thanks, I gotcha, I see various tones and colors sometimes but I fail to mix it in the same value so it tends to look like spots. I'm trying to remember not to do that and take my time to get everything right.
i really like the effordlessness the portraits have. really nice, great nurchered talent. Really like to see some genre stuff by your hand or Some direction in a situation of the portrait.
Again great stuff.
Really awesome stuff! Where did you go to school?
