owlies: Thanks for stopping by! and thank you very much for the kind comments, i'm very glad you feel that way, i think an artist has to give its best, cheers
Revidescent: Thats exactly the one and only flaw i've been trying to overtake with the pastels, i though i had it with that last one but after posting it i new it was a fail... i've been aware of the problem since the first Caillebotte, lets see how i do the next one, thanks for the reminder man.
Here's a bit of an update. the last oil i did... don't like it that much, but that's ok, i will post more later:

Here are some forest studies (i hate painting forests, it is frustrating) and a speed painting (which, again i am not that happy with..), might do another forest based sp... i really don't like the end results of these... some of them are very hard to read..:

Sean McClain: Haha thanks man, i'm glad you like them, thanks for stopping by
I couldn't sleep today so i started doing a copy of Theodore Giracault's ''The Kleptomaniac'' in a very loose way, not thinking too much in details, not even doing a sketch first, just putting colors on the canvas and see what i can achieve with that.., this is complementing to something i heard, which stated that when you are relaxed you are more likely to get better results, so i gave it a try, i just love the loose process I've stumble up with
after getting some sleep and going to school, came back and did a couple more, a Sargent and a Repin

cedule: Yeah, it is a very nice way of doing studies, and listening to music helps a lot... thanks for stopping by man!
Revidescent: Ah! i'm glad, i really hated them when i saw them all together in the post, i still think i didn't quite got to understand them, but they're just studies.., on the other hand i'm quite happy with the master studies, thanks for stopping by!
So, i gave the pastels another go, but again, failed, also learned some stuff.., got some blending tools which helped spread the pastels and cover most of the paper, but i am beginning to think that the paper i bought specially for the pastels has a very very rough texture that doesn't help me get a nice finish leaving little blank spots, i mean i'm as confident with the pastels as i am with the other mediums, and i believe it is the paper i bought, i'll buy another paper with a softer texture and see what comes out....
This one is a De Gas study:
Edit: I'm really sorry for the lack of updates, i was a bit anemic and i apologize

I have been very busy these days... arriving home late at night and beginning with school (finally my last year) i haven't been able to paint that much... again i'm sorry for the short amount of updates, but here: two Paul Delaroche studies, the first one i couldn't get the eyes right, not wanting to make a fuzz a bout it, i left it as it was... i wanted to play a bit more with the brushwork on the second one..:
So, i catch up a flu some days ago... got my defenses down... i get asthma just from sitting, go short of breath very often, and have headaches every now and then, is quite annoying really, i didn't want to draw, but i just couldn't bear with the idea of not practicing, its quite funny... i think... so anyways, ''updates'', hum... here are two copies i did in my literature class of some portraits i found in the subject's book... and one Sargent study, enjoy.
By the way, are you guys into The Clash?

Long time, right? sorry for the lack of updates lately... i have huge amount of homework to do, and i also have been practicing the guitar a lot lately... so don't have much time to paint, but even so I've painted some stuff, here's a bit of that..:
Three Norman Rockwell studies, these were meant to be a brush experimentation, it was fun:
this sketchbook need way more updates, love the studies you do, and how you handle the brush, but i'd like to see sketches straight out of your imagination.
also awesome ideas in post 178, im probably going to do some sketches using those as inspiration (hope you dont mind ) thank you!
G@m: Thank you for the visit and the kind comments!, yes i do know i need to do that more often, i'm working on it, oh and be my guest, and if you end up doing something with those, show the results,
Flaskpost: thank you!
As always.., not much, lots of homework... here are two Jeremy Lipking studies, i'm loving the mood in these two:
Thx for sketchbook visit man, great studies here, absolutely love your master studies and environments. One point though, is make sure these will transfer into your imagination work, even if you don't wanna do any yet . Oh and I'm starting a study (or trying to) so if you wanna join (or anyone else reading this) just get back to me and I'll try and sort everything out keep it up.
Master studies are looking good, great colour use on the Rockwell ones. I like the imagination image from the 9th, though the composition feels just a tiny bit awkward, and I think it has something to do with the placement of the moon. It's making everything look a bit squished towards the centre.
Holy shit your recent stuff looks incredible!! The graveyard looks awesome. really like the light behind that tree. can't really make any comments since you are way better than me lol one thing I learned from Feng Zhu's video is he adds a lot of mist to objects far away. The tree seems really far away so maybe the small branches wouldn't be so clearly defined? I don't know that seems pretty much nit-picking though.. so yeah... lol It's amazing to see how fast you improve, and you are already so good and so young to start with @@..... I really love the brush experiment pieces you did. So jealous.

Awesome sketchbook man, I love seeing how you experiment with texture and color as much as you do. Really inspires me to start on the road to landscape painting, we seem to be on the same page in terms of what we like, at least I think so.
