Painting: Images and Thoughts.

Some studies from this week. I love doing these; they were started a couple of years ago primarily as an exercise, visual calisthenics if you will. But I am becoming increasingly involved and interested in doing them! At their best they are unpredictable. I try to resist the impulse to draw with pencil first, as the work from directly painting them is more difficult but often surprising! Enjoy.

    I like the way you use anchor points of readable details to give the viewer enough information to complete the picture in their minds. I especially like the feeling of weight in the second figure from the top. Your transparent marks convey a sense of her bulk very nicely.
