Busy These Days...


I've got a few cool projects on the go right now (which hopefully I can share here soon). Unfortunately, they're eating up a lot of my spare time, and I haven't been able to post here as much as I'd like. So as usual, I'll buy some time by posting more head studies!
First one is from life, 2 hours, 8x10". Second one's a study after Morgan Weistling.

I love Morgan Weistling. You did a good job too. Thats who I thought of when I saw this one. Do you have his DVD?

Thanks guys,
Paul - Yeah, Morgan is one of my favourite living fine art painters. His DVD was very instrumental in guiding me in a good direction of learning. He's got another one coming out, which I've pre-ordered as well.

Aaron - Thanks! The study from life was 2 hours infront of the model. The Weistling study was about 4-5 hours over two sittings.

Can I add my 2 cents in? Lovely! I'm doing two portrait commissions now and will use these as inspiration to keep me loose.
