Every week, i meet with a group of sketchers in Munich, we pay a model and draw 3 hours, starting with multiple 2 minute then 5 then 10 to finish with few 20 minutes poses. Those two where drawn over 20 minutes love and finished over couple of hours when I came back home. Thanks to Stan’s portrait course I took a few years back I do feel more and more comfortable and see the progress. Any suggestions of what I could do to further progress? many more portraits in my album

The Tempest. I enjoyed playing with light with these complimentary colours. I don’t usually go so abstract but I was trying not to think and just paint 🙂

Your painting cought my eye! Attractive set of complementary colors. On the contrary of the 2 other comments, I find the brush work a bit too noisy for my taste. I am not clear what the focus point of your painting is. Maybe have your focus point painted in a smooth style could have brought a brushwork contrast that would have made it more readable? just my 0,2cts…

My submission for the June 2022 Challenge! Worked hard to preserve a sketchy and painterly feel with the brushstrokes while still maintaining a realistic representation of the colours and light.

Very nicely done. I like the way you brought depth by changing the saturation of the second soldier

The details for the texture of the egg was hard but ultimately I loved the process.

Should there not be less reflected light in the part of the egg not over the table?

Here is my HTB worm that looks a bit worried. Finding the half way in traditional medium is a pretty arbitrary exercise. I looks easier to achieve in digital but have not tried it yet

Reading the news this morning I found 2 pictures of the new German chancellor, Olaf Scholtz with 2 different angles that I thought I would try to render rapidly in the same way as the Asaro head exercise. Cannot post the model à because of IP but can be found on lemonde

I ended up redrawing this little cutie as I like to work « traditional ». I added a 5th step which consisted of a cleanup and rework of some of the values. The only digital part is the fun one at the end. if it would not be in space this cutie would Muuh…
