2 New Julia Pieces

The oil all prima painting I did last week but was waiting to dry before I took a photo.  It is 16"x20" of Julia done in just one sitting.  I am teaching an alla prima class this fall and want to get more practice.  The little drawing is 6"x6" done in just a few hours.  It is graphite on toned paper.  Both are of the model Julia.  I am trying to do several different things with this pose to get the most out of it.

Kris Kuksi Sculptures

Intricate and interesting.  I love the work of Kris Kuksi, to date one of my favorite sculpturers. Though I always want to see them larger they are amazing.  I am including some great links I found which helps explain his process a little better.  His process is called kitbashing or model bashing something that the film industry used to create models.

Two New Pieces Last Couple of Days

I have 2 smaller pieces I've done in the last couple of days.  It's funny being a painter, you are generally your worst critique.  I keep going back in forth with these two.  Ultimately I think if I spent days on them then I would be a little happier with them but that defeats the purpose of daily painting.
So here they are.  They are both 6"x4" Oil on Board.  1)Night and Day 2) At Rest (color study)
