Here's another quick (badly taken photo with my iPhone) of the long-pose portrait I have been working on on Wednesdays:
It's coming along! Hopefully, as I near completion I won't 'overwork' it. That's often a challenge when one has time to really sit with a painting.

Whereas there is something immediate and alive in painting under a time constraint, as evident in the portrait below:
I only had about 2 hours with this one. It's oil on un-stretched linen, roughly 8x10". He is one of my favourite models at the NYAA. I am pretty sure this man has mastered not blinking; he's a true artist.

Thanks for looking!

Hello All,

Thanks for checking in on this little art blog.

New York City is hunkering down for an early March snowstorm tonight, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to share the progress on a few drawings/paintings.

Here is the most recent progression of the Older Gentleman, mentioned in the last post:

Yesterday, the model walked up to my drawing and told me that it was "like looking in the mirror'. So hopefully, I can continue to reflect his likeness honestly.

Here's another progression of a long-pose portrait. This one has about 8 hours on it. It's oil on gessoed hardboard, 8x10":

As you can see, I've only really refined the model's right eye... Still so much work to be done. Wish me luck!

Thanks for looking:)
