Animal studies

Polar bear was done 3 1/2 hours on monday night. Tiger 3 1/2 hours tuesday night. Both of them are oil on prepared cardboard. I have a lot of free time at work in the evenings those two days, so I figured I'd start making good use of my time there by painting. In my studio I'm never motivated to do these kinds of things since I just want to work on the good, meaty stuff to get a career. Which is stupid of me. I should do more of this now so it makes my portfolio pieces that much better later on. We'll see what I end up doing. I might spend the rest of 2009 actually just practicing my painting technique. Not a bad game plan. Hmm....

Finished!! (almost)

Its done enough that I can post it online. But I want to tweak it some more traditionally so that its show worthy for the Spirit Gallery show. So I won't be doing a third painting as I need to finish this one, but I will put in a third piece that is a very nice, finished drawing. Huzzah!
