These are all images taken after the first days of the projects in Life Painting class. I've noticed that I've gotten much faster ( the first is an unfinished drawing, the second's lower body was rushed, and the third I had enough time to start indicating value and environment) and slightly more accurate. In the latest I've unconsciously done away with my calligraphic brush stroke in favor of straighter lines ( we'll keep the fancy stuff for Alla Prima painting). I'm hoping my speed will allow me to bring the last one to a higher level of finish and deal with color a bit better.

First day of the second in-class painting. I think I'm getting slightly better at measuring/ drawing.
untitled. 22x28 inches. Oil on canvas. WIP.
Start of a self portrait for homework. I like working with the light umber ground and vine charcoal in this beginning stage. I think it's kind of how Sargent started his works.

8 hour painting in raw umber, the first in-class assignment.

11x14, charcoal and chalk on paper.
I've done some more work on it since this picture, most of which is interpreting the hue changes ( obviously not seen in black and white) into the drawing so I have that knowledge when I proceed to paint.
