the past two weeks

It's been a long couple of weeks. I was in Ohio last weekend and sick this weekend. I haven't felt much like publishing anything in my blog until now. Here are a few things I've done over the last couple of weeks.

Paintings for the week of 5-12-12

 I painted this from a photo I took in Ohio a couple of years ago. Cute little thing, isn't it?

I'm not going to show what I did in figure drawing this week. It was pretty awful. I copied this from an image I found on the internet. It is a painting by Robert Liberace. I only used yellow ocher, cad red, black and white.

This is from last weeks post, but I worked on it some more, so I wanted to show it finished.

This is also from last week, but now it's finished.

I painted this today with the same pallet of yellow ocher, cad red, black and white. It is amazing how many colors you can make from those four. I am trying to look sad. It's kind of hard to hold a certain look and paint at the same time.

Paintings for week of 5-5-12

I had another pretty slow week. I painted this from my driveway Fri after noon. If I get another similar day light wise, I may work on it some more. 

This is another start of the angle figurine of mine. It was cold and windy today, so I didn't feel much like hanging out outside. I may work on this one some more as well.
In figure drawing this week I decided to try a portrait. It looks a lot like the model however as a painting it seems to be lacking something.
