I'm happy to write that the "eye issues" I was dealing with through all of September and a good part of October are behind me.  I'm painting and drawing again but I'm reluctant to start anything big until my confidence rebounds.

If you have any questions or comments please send them along.  Thanks for stopping by.

Original model block-in for the above color work
Drawing practice

 I bought two wooden models at a flea market this summer and recently started using them for the purpose they were intended.  It's good practice, there's no model fees and you don't have to worry about the pose; it's whatever you want.  Easy.
Gesture practice using charcoal

More practice with facial tone and shadow

A quick block-in from a fashion model photo.  I need to return to add another layer

Another 3hr. figure block-in at the Baum School

I just liked the dog.  No other reason.

More facial practice
