Going mad

If I am going mad, might as well go all the way. Found some crazy set of paper with ugly colors, along with the usual 20+ light setting and cheap watercolor and chalk. Keep rubbing the chalk while the dude next to me splashed red acrylic on my paper. Man... I am really going mad...

Rejected designs

Finally, one of the concepts has gone far enough for me to start working on presentation pieces. Still a lot more to go but finally getting close. To start off, here are some of the rejected sketches.(The one I haven't burned anyway. *smile*)

Recent studies...

No sure what the hell I am painting these days . I am slowly convincing some of the seniors to read the Craig Nelson painting book while finding techniques to deal with the 20 light situation. To my amazement, there is no copy of Craig's book in town at the moment.(with the library on strike) Hopefully I will convince enough people to do something about the lighting before I ran out of interest in this challenge.

The model was a good looking muscular young guy. While the old ladies were busy getting high, I decided to give him some leather armor. No sure why I am attracted to the cheap watercolor. Guess that's the bi-product of hanging around Mr. Sanchez.

An attempt on painting a white women with plenty of hair.

With the high price of paper due to the strong Canadian dollar, I end up using the brown crappy paper from Office Depot. Amazingly, the price only break even with the Sketch paper from Utrecht, considering paper were made in Canada. Anyway, the big down side is the paper does not take dry mediums well. Time to bring out the brush and ink.
