We interrupt this blog...

In lieu of Hurricane Isaac and the craziness
which ensues both before and after, I 
haven't done much in the studio over the 
last week (translation; diddly squat). 
So here's some older stuff...




Not old actually, fairly recent.  Experimenting
with a different approach



This one's recent too (okay, so none of this is older stuff!), 
and unfinished.  This one started getting too
tight so I had to take a break from it.  
Hopefully I can come back to it with a
little fresh energy soon...

Blue girl #12

 
This was more or less an exercise of using a
somewhat limited palette and just mixing
the colors on the fly with the brushes rather than
pre-mixing.  I like her.

Head study


Just moving paint around, doing a head study.
Interested in leaving areas a little rougher
and not finishing every inch of the canvas
or paper...

Draw Everyday.




Draw Everyday. 
That's my new mantra.  Try to get in at
least an hour or two of drawing
everyday, be it just sketching or
more finished stuff.  Drawing skills are so
fundamental to creating better paintings, and
it's amazing how much better I feel
about my work when I am keeping in
practice with pencil and paper. 
Lately I've been in full on drawing mode
which is nice.  Here's a few of the more finished
ones.
