This was a five hour study using photoshop. This was very fun and I learned a lot about color.

So this one was pretty fun and challenging. I worked this painting the same way as the previous ones, and the total time on it was about 6 hours. I want to come back to this one and add detail or a background or something, or I might not. I don't know.
My first life painting I worked on today. I was focusing on color and the form of the figure since I have very little knowledge of either. I finished this one in exactly 2 hours.
This was my second painting I worked on today, it took me around 3 hours to complete.

This is the final painting for the evening, taking me around and hour to complete.
This is another painting I did of my friend, Jena from tonight. Total time is 30 mins.
This was another 20 min painting of my roommate Louis. It was good practice for me as well.
This was a quick painting that I did in 20 mins. Difficult for me to paint due to color, but overall, I think that this was a good study.

My first oil painting. A master copy of Jacques-Louis David's "Death of Marat". I would like to attempt it again in color some day.
My second oil painting and another master copy. I ended up really enjoying Joaquin Sorolla's loose brush work. I learned a lot from this one.
My third Oil painting and my favorite. I'm not finished with this one. I still have to finish the value and then add colors as a glaze over it. It's a copy of the modern master Jacob Collins. Check out this artist; he has a wonderful sense of surface quality and realism.
A charcoal rendering of a Indian. Total completion time was around 16 hours.
Okay. First of all. I know that there are proportion problems with this piece!... :) This is another Master copy for my Life Drawing class. This one was done in charcoal on toned paper.
An unfinished graphite rendering of a still life. I have around 20+ hours on this one, and another 10+ hours until it's finished.
A quick 1 hour still like study in white and black chalk. I was aiming toward implying surface and form.
