Yummy! keep them comin! I like the dibby dabby colorspotting on the tracing paper there, something im trying to do now too! Explain a little more about this maybe?
[url=http://galleryonefone.blogspot.com[/url] This would be my gallery in Sweden
This would be my Pleine Air blog
First time in your SB.
I love your life drawings, beautiful stuff.
It's true what they say, you are fabulous.
love the studys, very free, nice loose style, but solid....cool.
Oooohh, apples *dribbles* that one is nice! ^__^
Good to see the process. I am taking study of it.
Now, do more!
Emily! I'm digging the painting! And you've been travelling! I love seeing your work, as usual. I love the color! That bread looks mighty tasty...
I'll have to try tracing paper. Does the oil adhere well to it or do you prime it with anything?
Lovely traditional work and the last portrait was INCREDIBLE. Down to the T everything looked proportioned and correct. Only the best can come from working with Mr. Whitaker, and it definitely shows with you. Keep up the great work!
Wow, you've got amazing talent! It's very inspirational too.
I hope I can reach that level one day.
Keep up the incredible work.
Will update sometime soon.
Hey, I already got a pencil as yours, do you know where I could buy and eye like yours?
PS:Kidding, I didn't get a pencil like yours (I don't think it'll help me much though).
Stark--thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed it.
David Kassan--thanks so much for the kind words. Bill is actually doing his last workshop this January in Scottsdale, AZ, then he's leaving the workshop scene. He's sick of dealing with old hobbyist ladies. But he's still open to Concept Art workshops because he likes working with young people, so I'm sure we'll get him there doing demos again.
muleskinner--thank you so much!
DeathChalupa--no problem, I think it's a matter of taste.
Telvious--oh, thank you.
Lee W--thank you.
Art_Addict--thanks. No, Bill doesn't form paint, he uses broken color kind of like I did above in the apple study. He studied under Alvin Gittins. Here's a link to one of his demos: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=83405
MarkWinters--oh wow, thanks so much!
reidaj--it was always planned that I'd do a cast study, but then we jumped to painting and I have gotten so caught up in it. It's still possible that I'll do one, we'll have to wait and see.
Bojee--thanks. Hope you are well.
Flynt--thanks so much for taking the time to drop by. I enjoy your work a lot.
timpaatkins--hey! The broken color is a good way to start out a painting. You just put down one piece of color, mix a slight variation, put down another piece of color, etc. After awhile, you have the whole thing covered. The colors will visually mix (sort of like the impressionists). You can leave it or blend more if you wish. It's a great way to get a lot of life in your colors, rather than just having things a solid color.
HunterKiller--awe, how nice!
Blue Severin--nice to see you and thanks!
Nixon--nice to see you! You don't have to prime the tracing paper and the oil adheres fine, though the surface feels a little slicker under the brush. I'm going to try some studies on frosted mylar and see how that is as a surface.
Icharin--thanks so much! I'm glad you like it.
Queen Nehalania--thank you!
lennon--lol! Just do some exercises and you can train your eye!
Oblio--looking forward to seeing you in Seattle!
Ok sorry guys, I'm a little behind. I have a few things to post that some have seen already, but not everyone has.
This was another bread study. I think this has two sessions on it:
Here it is finished up after three session:

tenes un dibujo a lapiz muy bueno
You seem to be in a nice learning environnment..surely nicer than my bed and my few books...
It's a pleasant sketchbook, your studies feel right.
Keep it up
I love ur work^^, i like working with oils but i'm far to be as good as u. so we share the liking for oil painting but we also share the same birthday date...wow i don't think it's a coincidence, destiny tells me u have to teach me all about oil painting ;D Have a nice day, i sure have ^^
PS:some people made crits about a certain left eye not well adjusted. it's not really the eye but the eyelid, look closely.
hey i think you love food so much~hoho~ nice drawing,i love them!
patdzon--yes, you can just keep adding patches, using subtler values and colors to achieve a transition. You can also blend using a soft brush if the paint is still wet. Sometimes I go over the whole thing with a second layer of smoother color after the first layer of broken color has dried.
Craig D--yeah, it's great to practice with. Flesh-like tones and no one can tell if you don't get the shape exactly right.
AphexTweak--oh, thank you so much!
Creatinity--yeah, it's a wonderful environment. Thanks for your comment on my studies.
spartiate--haha, thanks! That's cool we have the same b-day.
WhereToExile--haha, I guess so! Thanks.
copperfire--thanks so much!
Seattle was so great--I loved seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
I had this in my portfolio, but the print was so dark I'm sure nobody could see it.
Here's a better look.
How academec !!!!!
Hey Emilgy G, didn't you have some figure studies in your portfolio at Revelations?
This is really great stuff, I'm really inspired by your effort to pickup classic atelier studies. And thanks for the advice at Revelations
great oils emily!
Wow. This is an amazing Sketchbook thread. Thanks for sharing your work. It is really fantastic.
