Artwork from the past few months

Self Reflection, 12 x 9, charcoal on Yupo
Skull and Circle, 12 x 12 inches, oil on panel
February, 36 x 24, oil on canvas
August, 48 x 36, oil on panel
Here are a few of the paintings and a drawing done over the course of my senior year. Each painting was painted from observation each taking 4 weeks. I wanted to branch out a bit and start to play with space around the figure, perspective wrapping, and texture. My palette has become more and more muted as time goes on and I feel it helps to bring out intense colors in a stronger way than when I used to use them all over. I have a couple works in progress at the moment going in new directions which I can't wait to finish up.
