Master and coulour studies

 Zorn! Anders Leonard Zorn so I had not heard of him until fairly recently. I heard of him on a podcast and after I picked up the pieces of my mind I needed to do a study.  His painting style like Sargent look effortless. But he also looks like he was having a lot of fun. I tried to replicate the brush strokes as best I could. The mastery of this man was something else.
 Some Mullins studies, I love the contrast in value on these. Seeing if I could capture it.
 Shaddy Safadi has a series of videos on Alla Prima digital painting,there quite good. Everyone should check them out on his YouTube page. Really interesting technique it involves a under painting of really rich complementary colours. A very methodical and step driven technique, and a lot more enjoyable them it would seem. I'll have to try what I learned with this on a couple of production paintings in the future. "it's about looking good, not being good" that quote has helped in more ways then I think he knows. Just form a physiological point of view.

Sketching and Ztuff

Time is a expensive commodity that I have had difficulty affording recently for the blog. I'm very inspired by the Gumroad work that artist have been selling. It's fun to learn, while sketching. I'll post more stuff soon. I have a couple of studies I've done and work stuff I'll be able show soon-ish.
