Some overdue images

First is a painting I finished a few months ago of my neighbor Monique. It started off as a full body painting but I didn't like or feel that the body was necessary. It didn't add anything to the image so I just cut it out of the board. Right now it needs a final varnish and to be completely cut out.

This next one is my first drawing at the saturday portraiture class at GCA. Our model was Ana Nina

Last is the current GCA class drawing of Vasilia (sp). I really want to paint but I'm forcing myself to finish it as a drawing.

Ole part deux!

Here is a second dancer drawing I just finished up. Enjoy :)

So I took one of those 4 sketches and blew it up to a somewhat finished drawing. I'll probably do more youtubing and sketching to familiarize myself with the movements. Ideally this will allow me to recall the fluid grace of the dancers from imagination and make it easier to pose the model :) Enjoy!

oh my damn!

I have all but disappeared off the face of the earth. SO much going on right now and not enough time to accomplish everything I want to do. This will be the first post of my current whereabouts and artistic doings so stay tuned. There's a lot I'm up to :) I'm starting a series of paintings depicting dancers and ultimately it will culminate into a narrative series... hopefully. It may take a few years but the initial idea and concept I have promises to be lead to exciting things. So this is a page from my sketchbook of some flamenco dancers. I may take all these to finish in drawing and then work them out in painting.

One of them may be for a client :)

This next drawing is just a quickie I did in Alex Piccirillo's class last Wednesday. Roughly 45 minutes or so. The portraiture class at Grand Central Academy has increased my drawing abilities significantly in a matter of a few weeks. Enjoy!
