I've been away for a while, mostly landscape sketching outside in gouache but summer has gone, back to studio work, hot tea and oils.
Here are some quick studies from life in the week end + one landscape from photo, A2 size, 2-4 hours.
I have been studying Richard Schmid intensively lately (bought all his DVDs). Love his style, I saw this was already discussed in the forum. I tried some funny abstraction in the background in his style for the still lifes as he does it so marvellously well, but not quite as successful as he is.
Drawing is done on the fly with the brush, no careful penciling, so my lines and ellipses are not perfect. Will work on that.
Critiques welcome, thanks for watching.
