More Figure Sketches

Here are a few more figure sketches I completed over the weekend. I especially love the one of the standing female. This was a 30 minute sketch that just came together, drawing the initial form and then the painting of light and shade.

I hope you enjoy them!

Fast Figure Painting

This past weekend I attended a two day intensive figure painting workshop. What made it so very stimulating was that the longest pose was for 30 minutes! It was great fun, really getting into the paint and only focusing on the moment and what my senses could perceive. Here are a couple of the paint sketches I completed.

This was a 10 minute pose, and is completed on an 8 x 10 inch canvas panel:
