two old still-lifes

These are a couple of old still-lifes (2003-04) that were stored away for years and I just looked at them again the other day. The above one was painted with just lead white, yellow ochre, vermillion, and ivory black. This was great practice as it forces one to create form and the illusion of color with a minimum of pigments. Now I use about 20 colors.

drawing/still-life class

This is a preparatory drawing done for my still-life class at LAA. The still-life will have good color, and I hope to post progress on it.

figure drawings

I thought it would be nice to show some figure drawings. This is a six-hour figure drawing done at the Lyme Art Association last week:

And here is one done at the LAA four years ago in charcoal:

Some drawings of the model Bill, who models frequently. The standing one I drew in ball-point pen at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts in Jerry Weiss's class:

These next two are demo drawings I did for my figure drawing classes at the Mystic Art Center:
