Ok, SO YES, I DO have a great big creative fire burning under my behind...

And some more new things...

This is another portrait attempt using the same technique as the last one (layers of watercolour washes), using another B/W portrait from my book, and this is the rendering,I tried to be a little looser in my style and not be so "illustrator" It looks a bit better I think thought I have still made some obvious errors regarding the shape of the face, and it could use a little more work on the high and low lights. It is amazing how obvious things become in a photo or mirror while it is sometimes tough to see when it is right in front of you! I guess it sort of looks like maybe his brother or dad...

This next is what I did in class yesterday, a first attempt at a charcoal sketch with an overlaying wash of water color.

Not bad, though I was working from another piece of artwork while I would prefer a model or photo. After class I went and got some charcoal and some big paper so I can try a few at home this week... *Can't wait*!

I am sure my family will be thrilled...*Any one feel like getting nude?*

...*Just kidding!*
BTW I would really love any critical comments you have as a viewer, or artist, technical or any suggestions and please Be HONEST!! I would love to hear your ideas...besides nice stuff... REALLY!
SO what are YOU working on? Show me!

Hey, I'm just a random blogger from across the world! Anyways, I personally have very little talent in art, not like you. I think your paintings and drawings leave a stronger and lasting impression than the original pieces (: Keep up the good work!
