Some recent work

I havent posted anything in a while but happy to finally get a chance to put some recent work up! i hope you enjoy and any feed back is greatly appreciated!
This painting i struggled with alot and for the fist two hours i had a pretty decent painting rendered and then felt it was just off and not very representational of what i saw in front of me. So i erased it and moved my position and this was the result of the last two and half hours.

 Portrait of Rebecca (2011) Oil on Panel
Color Study (2011)

Detail of a work in progress (2011) this is a painting that im looking forward to doing on a much larger scale but just taking a different approach with it and in the future will really get in some detail.

this is one of the largest sculptures I've done so far and am very proud and excited to continue with sculpture!

Drew my mom for the first time it was fun going back into drawing with black and white charcoal. i've really missed the way the charcoal feels on this kind of paper. Its canson ingres steel gray. Just Generals Charcoal. on an 18x24" paper and the pose was for 1:45 min.

Heres a drawing i did a week prior of my little sister in about 25 min. Same kind of paper as the one above as well

Alla Primas

Ill be adding more as I go but here is one I did abut a week ago in a little over 3 hours.
Its a small 5x7". Oil on Panel

Portraits and Quick Study

Portrait of Samantha. Really loving this process of slowly observing and hatching with the paint to create form and volume. I only had a brief moment to paint sam from life but would like to take this same approach with future models I get to work with. (Samantha 2011 Oil on Panel)

This was a two day painting I did from life from natural light. I learned the downfall of having to deal with the first day being sunny and nice out, then the next day being cloudy and no sun. So I scraped some paint off and quickly started laying down cooler tones. (Self Portrait 2011 Oil on Panel)

Did this quick hand study a couple weeks back after class. (My left hand 2011 Oil on Canvas)
