Figure Studies

Some of my latest figure paintings. The top two are on 8"x10" panels, three hour poses, and the bottom is an 11"x14", about twenty one hours. The top one and the longer pose one were done at Grand Central, the other one at the national art league in douglaston. The lighting at grand central is way better than the setup that I'm using at the art league. I've joined another informal figure group that meets at GCA saturday mornings, so with that and my Tuesday group and the saturday class I'm getting quite a bit of figure work in. It's about time.

Listening Devices

"Listening Devices" 11"x14" oil on linen Another one of my "thematic" still life paintings. I'm not sure what it all means, but I enjoyed conjuring it up and then painting it.

More "..Devices"

Finished the ebauche over an earlier wipeout and now I'm slowly crawling my way across the forms. Some people like to draw out the letters on their objects but I prefer to block in the form first and then just blast in the letters while the paint is still wet. Most of the time I'm not really trying to match the exact letters, I'm just going for an overall feel, I don't really want people reading my paintings.
