Figure drawing in progress

Here are two photos of my current drawing that I'm doing as a demonstration and alongside my students in my figure drawing class.  I've uploaded them as large files so you can click on them for a larger image and then right click and view image for a lot larger image!   What more could a person want?

Day one, block-in
I always find it interesting and exciting to draw the standing figure.  Our model is doing a great job keeping still!  No fainting happening in this class... but that is a different story for a different blog...

Day two, starting to turn the form

More info about the class here.

Tree study

Here are three photos of a small tree study I'm working on.

Cell phone pic of day one setup, the painting is a bit overexposed in the photo...
Tree study day two.  Oil on linen 11"x12"
I may end up keeping this painting in this state of unfinishedness as I like the quality it has, something more like a drawing to me.  Or I may go back and finish more of it....
