The Latest and Greatest

Well finals are virtually over…I have one more scheduled one on Wednesday night, but basically just have to show up. So I’m pretty much done! It was sort of a stressful weekend, but a good sleep-in this morning and even an afternoon nap today and I’m good as new.

So I thought that since I’ve finished all my projects that I’d share a few with you. There are some that I didn’t take pictures of since the paint was still wet, so I’ll post those sometime later. But here are several of the ones that I turned in on Friday for my Figure painting class:


As you can tell from this photo, I did a little block design in the back. My teacher said I should just do it a solid color since it was a frontal portrait, but c’mon…boring.


I’ve already posted a picture of this one on here and haven’t changed the paint at all, but you might have noticed that I chopped it. It used to be rectangular shaped, but I chopped off the whole right side. Looks MUCH better.


Please don’t even look through my archives and check out the progress I made on this photo…I’m embarrassed of the first draft cause poor Deborah looked like a mutant. She looks much better now 🙂


I just added a little background on this one, trying to make it similar to Philip’s. Unfortunately I can only do a good thing one time apparently, cause this one looks kind of lame. Maybe I’ll do it over when I get chance.


I have nothing to say about this portrait except that it continues to be my favorite. I never repainted the shirt – I just ran out of time. But I’ll get to that some day so it doesn’t look like he’s in a permanent shirt-cocoon.

I was trying to post the updated version of Landen’s portrait because I changed it and love it so so much, but it has been saying “Uploading” for the past 15 minutes. So I’m giving up. I have more stuff that I’ll post tomorrow, so that will go in that pile. For now, enjoy these.

  • It’s fun to see these, MB. I like how you did my left eye! 🙂

  • As usual, terrific!
