Some homework

It's been a while since i've updated the blog, and I apologize since I've been doing surprisingly well this year.  Tomorrow after open studio I'll post some of the drawings I've done in the last couple weeks.  For now, here's some homework.

The above 3 are for anatomy class with Stephen Perkins.  Reacquainting myself with charcoal and slowly learning to love it, despite all my bitching and griping.  I'm still working on some compositional sketches for a large multi-figure painting that's our semester long project.  I'm thinking about 5 feet, maybe 15-20 figures :)

Above drawing is for Head Drawing with William Maughan, along with a close up.  So far he's incredible and gives the most thorough feedback I've ever received.  Just three weeks in and I'm learning to enjoy this pastel stuff.

Stuff n' such

It's been a while.  Here are three paintings I've worked on in the last week.  First one is a single session portrait done alongside my portraiture students last week in Rahway.  Probably about an hour and a half of work in here.

Second is male nude from life done last Sunday at open studio at the Montclair Art Museum.  Shameless plug:  Sundays from 11-3, $15, moderated by yours truly :)

Finally, here's a grisaille portrait I did tonight for my portraiture students.
