Quick sketch study for a painting I’m working on...forgot to back up while painting and goofed the proportions a little...guess that’s why it’s called a study..lol. You can get away with anything as long as you call it a ‘study’!
Exciting moment for me: today I confirmed that using Golden Open Acrylic white with the open medium can push acrylic white to behave like an oil paint. It can be pushed and pulled to create beautiful gradients.

"David's eye" - Quick Practice study of painting in grissaille
A switch from pencil and charcoal to holding a brush filled with paint is really uncomfortable in the start but then in a week you feel like you were always born to do this. It feels as if it was second nature , of course with lot of struggles and ahaa moments. All this while the process to draw is still the same. You start with first seeing and drawing the big shapes - with lots of squinting, to filling the shadow shapes, and then comes our friend big form modelling - which seems like a magic to me and then to variations of darks and putting the planes of light. Such a quick study can be done in 6-10 hours and is really helpful in knowing and getting used to the painting tools ( for newbies) and to the subject of interest.

I cherish the strength of mind in some ladies/women to form a team, strategise face challenges, conquer them in order order to achieve a goal. They will go extra mile, do what it takes to make the impossible happen. And guess what: This is not determined my physical appearance, in fact I have noticed recently that most people in this category are unexpectedly younger, mild and gentle looking than I thought but you need to be in their position for 24 hours and experience their thought process. Such people achieve great feat, set the pace and achieve more at young age. Women are indeed a vital aspect of the society, don't address them otherwise.
It took me time to get a model to suit this personality.

#wip on a portrait commission. All American boys at the beach. Commission work is great because ( It pays the bills) it sometimes forces me to paint things I shy away from ( happy, normal people, for example.
