Face #19!

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.

Face #17

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.

Painting from Life

Here's a painting I did last night 'from life'. A friend of ours posed for about 3 hrs. It's obviously incomplete, but I hope to finish from some photos I took. I like the direction it's going. Face #16 for my 100 faces blog.
