Ralph

This study was painted on Raymar's oil painting paper. I wanted to try out a few new surfaces since I've been mainly working on a rougher canvas. This study looks more like a drawing than a painting to me, maybe I was influenced by the surface? Ralph was a delight to paint and I hope to see more of him at the open studio.

Here is the final sketch.

Bunny

 

 

What better way to bring in spring than with a model named Bunny? This was painted at an open studio at The Palette & Chisel. I finally got there early enough to get out of the dark corner I usually set up in. Thank you uber pool. I used comparative measurements for this one and tried to make sense of her head tilted up slightly. The critique of needing a frying pan before making eggs kept coming to mind. I continued to go back to the big shape, frying pans are challenging.
