Studies

No place I'd rather be than in the classroom painting in front of the live model. If any of you bloggers out there live in Toronto, I'd love to have your painting company. I go to a studio called Artists 25 every Thursday night. Check the link for a map. Incidentally, I'm in the front page picture on the site, painting the African lady in this post. These are 2.5 hour oil studies done these past few weeks.

That's awesome. I'd go but I live in Ottawa. By hockey standards, I guess that means we're mortal enemies...

Marco these are really great - your really coming into your own with oils! I'd love to join you and get some tips - but it's a bit of a trek from England! Keep it up man!

Absolutely -gorgeous- Marco! You're taking to oils like ducks, water, and flying...such character in the faces and you've caught it so well.

And for the record, I -have- to have some testosterone overdrive or I wouldn't be working on this damnably -tiny- evil chainmaille links. I refuse to let something inaminate get the better of me even when I've got sore fingers...and besides. I love power tools! :P

Going to do studies for Batman tomorrow, really! And it's your fault!
