Here are today's head studies. Both paintings are oil on linen board, 9 x 12 inches. I was aiming for a combination of realism and abstraction using palette knives and brushes. Loosely inspired by Alyssa Monk and Andy Denzler. Getting there, I think.
My teacher said I should use these techniques with a nude figure on a much larger scale. Hmm, maybe. We do have a new pose next week. I might try that.
