Figure Painting

New work from this week's figure drawing session. 2 quick oil sketches and a long pose 24" x 24", all in oil.
The big painting has been changed, copper leaf, and deep blue glaze over the dress. I'm working on a big canvas of the standing pose. Will post some updated pictures as soon as I can.

Portrait of Long-time Islander, Al Sundstrom

This week our figure drawing group painted Al Sundstrom, long time San Juan Island farmer. Al brought a portrait that Ernie Gann had painted of him 40 years ago and hung it on the wall behind his chair. Here's my 12" x 12" oil on panel portrait, a 2 hour sit.
