I love quick sketch in oils. This is one of my favorite models. She's long and lean with a pixie-like personality.

Susan,
I like the looseness and spontaneity of this painting. Nice work.

Hi Becky,So nice to be able to keep in-touch with you through our paintings. I love your onion piece!!!

It's cool how you can get at so much with so little actually 'finished'. It reminds me to leave some of this spontaneity alone instead of trying to finish every single part of everything!

Susan, i like this very much too. You say so much with such clarity using minimal brushwork and colour! I think you should paint a series of paintings like this...

Beautiful!! I generally love sketchy stuff more than finished stuff, actually.

Hi Karen, I do like to play with this linear and open feeling particularly when trying to convey movement. Thanks for your insightful comments.

Hello Maggie, I do have a series of these figure paintings on-going. It's funny because I bounce back and forth from these to more carefully worked head-studies. Happy Painting!
