More museum stuff

Heyloes, had a pretty cool week, met up with stryg, Mazz and Rich did the usual museum > pub run, very enjoyable, oxford natural history museum in a thunderstorm is pretty fun. Filled up with families trying to escape the rain.

Also went to Alex's private view which was awesome, good to see the bristol lot. But other than that my weekend has been SO unproductive. Been busy with non art things.

Anyway, here's some rhubarb:

Managed to get some crits on this, started to lose my way. Face need recovering.

I went out and tried to get back into gouche after dribbling over mainloop's work, very small sketch, got into the whites WAY too early, thats how you kill a painting's depth.

Quick fruit on my desk.

The above mentioned museum :)

Soon the flood gate will blow and all the half finished sketches will have to be put up whether i like it or not. Anatomy work will remain firmly as a huge monolithic stack of sketches on printer paper though, never to be shown to the internet due to it's immense uninterest.

Post some life drawin stuff!!

No less immmensely uninteresting than still fruit and luminous bridges!! ;)

Seriously though, I like your still life studies of fruit, nice surface textures. How long would you spend on a study like this?

Your colours in your digital stuff tend toward brown quite a lot, even the fruit looks a little withered. Maybe it's just in contrast to the gouache bridge, but maybe you could try putting some more saturated hues into your digi-work?

I like the johann painting, especially the hand emblem on his chest - nicely done to look like a smudgey handprint. His posture is very slouched, though; hard to tell if this is part of his character or not?

Looking forward to your next post!
