More Paintings!

Like the title says these are more paintings I've done recently. 
This first one was in a show back in May called Muse. It was a show dedicated to women artists. I showed this one and the self portrait from the last post. I actually still haven't gotten those paintings back yet. Eep, i may need to get on that. 
The size is about 3.5 by 2 feet. or maybe for 4 by 2. I don't remember. 

For this painting I used a completely new technique with just using a palate knife. It only took me about an hour to complete it too, so I was definitely happy about that. It was my first male live nude model, which was overwhelming for an instant, but i quickly became comfortable. How can you go wrong with penises?
It a 1ft by 1 ft painting. 


  1. I really love the second done using a palette knife! lol I was super nervous my first day of live model drawings classes and I was really surprised when it turned out to be no big deal after like 1 minute. Now I prefer it over still life drawing / painting.

  2. I surprisingly wasn't nervous for the female live models (probably since I see my body naked everyday, haha) but the guy took a minute to get used to. But i love it now too!
