Ok ok this blog is “Daily”. And by that I mean “Weekdays only and some weekends at my leisure” 😀
Today this drawing, “Poise”, was sold on e-bay. If you are considering something, I have my painting “Passion” ending tomorrow morning. I recommend bidding before someone else does so you can get the incredible price.
Bid here on “Passion”
I have just finished a piece in my Jumeaux series, but have to wait until daylight to photograph it without glare (or with less glare, anyhow.) I will definitely put it up tomorrow (and earlier, rather than late like I normally make my posts) 🙂

“Demure” Female Nude figure sketch
Graphite on newsprint, 4×6
This was my sketch for the painting “Lost in Passion” that won the contest in February. I paid attention to my layout and composition as well as keeping my values restrained, while still adding detail.
And a glarey sneak peak at my next painting in my Jumeaux series, which should be done on the morrow:
8×12 Oil on Linen
to purchase: Please email email@example.com
11×14 oil on linen
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase.
Better photograph next time it is sunny (there is quite a glare in the upper corner from the light here.)
Here is what I am working on:
“She Sees” Charcoal on Layout Bond Female Portrait
Charcoal on Layout Bond 8×11
This portrait was intended to capture her seeing eyes. Recently sold.
And an update:
I am going to finish this soon I believe. I would like to work on the edges, and of course, put in the arms and finish the background. I like showing progress pictures 🙂
I will be out of town in Washington D.C. tomorrow and the next day – so I will not be updating until Thursday at least! Hope you have a wonderful Spring Break (even if you’re not on one!)
Don’t have much time to update today but wanted to post these works from today:
Oil on panel
Graphite on newsprint
I’ll write something with more content tomorrow!
“Happy Feet” Charcoal on Layout Bond paper, 16×20
In this one I wanted to capture multiple angles of the feet in a more detailed rendering. I created loose lines to draw the attention to each foot individually, while still keeping my drawing accurate and tight.
“Waiting” Female Portrait Alla Prima Oil Painting 8×10
Available, please inquire at email@example.com
Fresh off the easel (or still on it!) There’s some glare in the photo. In this photo I wanted to capture her distant and expectant expression and the cool shadows on her cheek and hair. I will be able to take a better photo when it is slightly drier tomorrow. Painted very thickly on this one for effect.
Here is a closer shot and one from the in progress:
“In New Light” Female Portrait oil on panel 11×14
This self portrait really says something to me about myself. The darkening shadows and bright lighting on the face and eyes I feel I captured as I pictured.
