Oh hello there peoples. Some more arts I did this week.

3 minute quickstudies.

20 minute reclining pose study

30 minute exercise on perspective and angles

Another 20 minute reclining study

And this one is a 2 week painting exploring a new technique. First week was only monochromatic using turp to pull out whites and linseed oil and liquin to keep the paint wet and sketchy. I wish I had a picture of it from the first week, it looked like a charcoal drawing. Second week was just glazing over with color and painting more opaquely. I really like the way it came out. :)

Just an update full of heads. So many heads lately. Oh just wait until I update my heads and hands sketchbook at the end of the semester. 100 heads and 100 hands! But for now, just a few.

This first one is kind of an edit/update because I fixed the painting of Deirdra a little bit after critique. Made her look less "grossed out", gave her head more mass and filled out her face and neck a little more. I think it looks a bit more like her now.

And here's a bunch of 5 minute drawings from Clothed Figure.

I think this one was 10 minutes. We were supposed to be looking up at the figure but some of my proportions are a little silly on this one.

And then this one was a self portrait for Heads and Hands. Worked on from a mirror.

Oh hello crazy bone structure woman. She kind of looks like me but even more strange looking.

I had so much fun painting my Derpa.
