This is a 40 minute oil quick sketch on a 9" X 12" canvas board. I love this model but he is very difficult. I ran out of time to refine his face and hands. I paint 20 minutes, take a short break then set the timer and go back and use the last 40 minutes.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
