Figure Drawing - New Tools

Hey everyone, here are a bunch of drawings from the last few months. I held back on posting most of these because I had so many paintings to post before, but I am just about caught up with all of that so here are some new sketches.


These next drawings are from when I crashed Henry Yan's drawing workshop at the Academy of art. Man, I miss the 2-minute intense gesture drawings, and she was great. These were so much fun to do. They never do two-minute gestures in Sebastopol, but they get you warmed up really well.


10-minutes

20-minute drawings done with mostly vine charcoal.



Sold.

These next drawings were from a few days ago. I've been using a lot of new drawing tools, of which I am working on doing another "materials breakdown" movie.


Have a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas everyone! Not that it's that cold around here, but I hope this painting reminds you of warm days at the beach after a long day of playing, or sunbathing, or watching your dog chase waves around.

New Figurative Series: Body of Earth

I am happy to unveil my newest series of figurative paintings. These have been in the works for a long time, and actually have been completed since before the "Natural Patterns" series, but they have been difficult not only in getting decent pictures of them, but in deciding how would be the best way to present them.

I have used my friend Nicole for figure drawings and studies many times. She is a former gymnast and dancer who is in incredible shape. Not only that but she's so giving of her time and talents for my artistic pursuits. I've been wanting to use her for a series all to her own for a while now.

This series grew out of my love of depicting the "form" of the "human form". I love being able to show the solidity and intricacy of the human body. The way things interlock, push, and pull underneath the skin is extremely fascinating. Nicole is the perfect model to explore this with. As with my other series, I like to tie in the subject and background in unique ways. In this series I've been attempting to echo suggestions of the form outside of the figure and into the murkiness of the backgrounds.

This series has been one that I've been exploring within the actual creation of the pieces instead of how I normally plan everything out. I feel like this series is going to evolve dramatically from these first few shots by the time I am done exploring it. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy these first steps.

"Reaching Ascension" 9x9 Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board. SOLD


"Tephra" 11x14 Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board



"Supreme Luminary" 10x18 Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board


"Eternal Braid"Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board



"Void Brightening" 20x14 in. Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board

New Series + Woodland - Modern Eden Gallery

Hey everyone,

I am participating in this month's group show at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco where I had my solo show earlier this year. The show is called Woodland and I created these new paintings for it.

They are both 10x10" oil on wood panel. I posted up WIPs on Facebook that you can check out here: LINK

If you are in the area and want to check out the show, you can RSVP for the event here or here.

This is the start of a new direction I am going in with the pattern concept I've been working with for the last year and a half. Rather than having the pattern interact with the skin of the model, it is growing out of the cloth and into the background. I hope you enjoy them.

"Of The Wildland" 10x10" Oil on Panel. 2011

"Attimi Bellissimi" 10x10" Oil on Panel. 2011
