Sketchbook Heads

ink and acrylic
First I made some shapes with the yellow paint and then
drew the heads - a good exercise.

Mixed media & collage
A little sketchbook action - maybe I'll post stuff like this more
often. This book is pretty small - 5" x 7"

Working with a Model

Working with a Model
2005, oil on masonite, 12" x 12"
This painting is from a series called Training Secrets for Painters. In this series I use martial arts training as a metaphor for the practice of painting - the titles are the obvious clue there. Remember those black and white teach yourself books - like How to Become a Kung Fu Master in Ten Easy Steps? This series is the humorous version for painters. This one deals with the all important issue of volume and has a little reference to Manet's Dejeuner sur l'Herbe.
