Gots my blogging pants on

Just an update on what I've been doing.

Small 6 x 8 study.  I have a lot of extra stock photos from previous shoots, so I'm just going to start painting them.  Going to hit this one up again to put some final accents and highlights.  Model is Liana, hired her last month for some thesis shots.

this is oil on fabriano hot press paper prepped with matte medium (3 layers homeys!).  I did the drawing first, sealed it, then laid in a wash of permanent alizarin crimson and permanent magenta.  That combo is quickly becoming my favorite base color plus it dries really fast.  Again, some extra photos from a shoot I had back in NJ for a job.  She's one of my favorite models and a great friend, Caitlin.

Liana again.  Did this one tonight after class with Jonathan Ahn.  I actually worked on it a bit more after I took the last pic, will post better quality photos when I finish these.
