Here are a bunch of practice landscapes. Only Value and Temperature were important and little attention was paid to details.
small practice landscapes
I am doing a bunch of very teeny studies to enhance my understanding of values and temperatures. Small paintings help you to learn more quickly, as you can churn out more paintings.
I love to sketch, especially when I have time to kill, while waiting. Here are two samples of these quick sketches, done with a click-pencil (graphite).
Another face in Charcoal and White Pastel.
Playing with temperature and values… It is all about the two. Enjoy!
An Urban-scape, probably somewhere in the Mediterranean. Playing with complements (Orange versus Blue) and pushing the color intensity. Thanks for Visiting. Enjoy!
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.
