Wow, I didn't realize what a big gap there was in the last time I posted and the most recent. I will try to do better. I am continuing working on a portrait that began at Thomas Nash's Portrait Painting Workshop. I am also starting to work on a surreal painting, as well as some daily practice from life. I will try to post more frequently. These are poor pictures as our digital camera is out, and all I have is the camera on my phone. Still lots more to go, got to move the ponytail higher, details in the ear, hair and chest....I have to get more FINISHED paintings done and get a portfolio together!!

Face #19 is the same portrait as #18, but counts as another face because it was the second sitting. Thomas sat for another 2 hrs or so tonight. I would have liked to correct some errors, but time ran out. I learned a lot on this one as well. I walked away from it for about 2 wks as work has been hectic. It was very difficult to get going again, but about 30 min into it we were back in full swing. I will probably tinker around with it a little more before giving it to Thomas, but that's all I'll post on this one.
Oil on Canvas sheet, alla prima.

Ok, so it's definitely turned into '100 Faces in 100 Days or so...'. Here's tonight's basic 'block-in' from my live model, friend Thomas Anderson. I got farther than I did on the others, so that's a good sign. We will do one more sitting to fix errors and add the details next week. I will replace this photo with the finished product when done, so check back.

For all Artists: If you haven't checked out Dave the Painting Guy internet show, you are missing out! I have learned so much since watching the show. So, go get self-educated! He is funny and entertaining....and, well...good! He broadcasts weekly, and you can literally learn to paint watching him. Here's the link:
