Figure study

This is a figure drawing I did a couple of months ago. it is charcoal on tone paper, only one session. I really like the way it was coming out, but unfortunately the model couldn't continue with the pose. I will post another study of the same model later. It is tough to find good models.

Sight Size Exercises

WOW! it's been a while since last time I posted something here.
So I have to make it up. Here is my most recent sight size exercise (Voltaire) first at top, and some other paintings using the same approach.
I tried my best to get the most accurate photo possible, but I guess is inevitable to loose some of the middle tones in the painting. I have to agreed with Jason Seiler in one of his recent post, when a painting is digitized it looses the feeling of painting, the oily look, the texture, etc.. but anyway I hope these images still gives a good sense of what I tried to accomplished in each exercise.
