Quick Oil Sketches

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


The Arabian Nights

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.
