Started a new painting!

I have been drawing for days now, and needed to start a new painting for my series. This is the third one. Very rough still, just the underpainting. The photo was taken by a friend of mine, from his deck.

Body Parts

Just practised some body parts at life drawing session on Wednesday. I did some other stuff to but no pics. I used different paper-not newsprint...and I liked using it a lot. I bought some sketchpads of 65 pound paper. I had some heavier paper but didn't like it. I haven't tried the new stuff yet..I hope it works okay. I will find out next Wednesday.

Quad Stretch

I worked this drawing up in my studio from the sketch I did at a life drawing session.
It is a study for a painting I want to do. The paper had some marks on it and I couldn't get the background smooth so I decided not to spend anymore time on it since it was just supposed to be a quick study. Charcoal on paper, 14" x 19" cropped a bit.

New painting...wip update

Changed it around a bit and added some birds and killer whales. Seems much better to me now. Not done yet. It isn't quite this blue, either. Hard to get a good pic.

Wednesday Night Life Drawing

I am beginning to feel more comfortable with the group. They are great! Here are a couple from last night.

New Painting WIP

I started a new painting. I am not sure how I like it. I may paint over the entire thing! For now it will sit until I decide what I am going to do with it.

Life Drawing

Went to another life drawing session, it is a lot of fun. I have a long way to go before I catch up to the other people there. I took newsprint this time because I am not creating masterpieces...just learning to draw figures. Here are a couple. from Wednesday night.
