First portrait is from the weekly portrait club we have at school after all the classes are finished up. This week the schools registrar, Marcia, posed for us. 12 x 16 on mounted linen. Second is a small study (about the size of your hand) that I wanted to push a little further than I normally would for such a size. It's on a block of wood that I prime usually for small studies. Third is a watercolour from last week.

Just finished this small painting. It also became an interesting texture study with some dry brushing on top of palette knife. Definitely something to keep in mind in the future.

First painting is of a statue I found at school when I had some downtime today. All in all it took about 6 hours, 5.25" x 7.5" oil on wood. The second is a 3 hour portrait of one of the instructors, Jen Thomas. Third is a work in progress or a slightly larger painting. Fourth is the latest watercolor I've done. I just started the watercolor class and I never really took time to try to learn it. I only dabbled a few times with it before.
