"Head Studies_Pirate"

Head Study I

Long Pose (2hrs)

9"x12", oil on canvas board

Head Study II

Quick Study (15min)

8"x10", oil on canvas board

These are head studies with the costumed model at the Art Center. Pasadena.
The model was "Tucker", who used be an assistant Animator at Disney. He said that he has a life-long hobby of collecting costumes, now he enjoys modeling wearing his costumes and creating characters.
I did two paintings of him.
The first painting took 2 hours.
It was almost time for the painting session to end in about 15 min. I wanted to go home.
Then I changed my mind and told my self "Let's see what I could do In 15 min".
So here is a second painting. I am so happy with the result.
No fuss ... That is FUN!
Feels like you are flying with the brush.

I have enjoyed the first painting, but with lots of efforts.
The second one was a breeze!! .........................

Tucker saw my second painting and was very happy too.

This caught my eye scrolling thru my dashboard of blogs I follow. Love how you did this--not to fussy and nice big brush strokes.

I love the looseness in both of these studies, if only I could paint that loosely......

Thank you, Wanda. Nice meeting you.
I could paint loosely when I paint far from the model. Also standing.
I enjoy figurative work. :D
