I love to sketch people and sketching figures in oil is one of my favourites. I love the loose painterly, incompletness of a sketch, leaving the rest for the viewers eyes to fill in. These sketches are all tiny: 5″x7″, therefore I suggested the facial features on only a few. #oilsketch #figuresketch #quicksketch #figures #beachfigures
I loved the casual pose of the model and how the face is left to the imagination of the viewer. It takes me to my childhood, in Nigeria, when I got hold of The Arabian Nights and I spent many hours reading the book. I have left it in the unrefined painterly state.

Another small 5″x7″ painting. A study in Aerial perspective, values and broken colors. Enjoy!
I took the pose from a photograph on the Internet. However it is heavily re-interpreted and the girls face could not be discerned in the original photograph, so I created her face from my imagination.
The best poses are not posed, and this couple delivered. This is from a video, where this scene was merely a second or two long, so I had to be fast with my fingers to pause this scene. I have changed the background quite a bit, except for the couple and the single dirt road.
…And so it begins…
