More Life Heads

It's funny, doing that longer portrait painting (below) has made certain things a little clearer when doing these shorter (2.5 hour) life studies. Further proof that long studies really inform the shorter ones. These are from the past three weeks.

These are colour keys for a project that doesn't actually exist. I just felt like taking the same(ish) palette, and painting a few different locations with it. Good way to wind down the day, too.

Oil on Rainboot

This one was fun to work on. I was recently asked to donate some artwork to an upcoming charity event. Only catch was, it had to be done on a pair of rainboots! So I sketched up a couple of characters, gessoed the boots, and painted away. I thought it was a nice opportunity to be able to show both sides of the character on either side of the boot. These will be auctioned off at the event. I have absolutely no idea what they'll sell for.
