Fast and Furious

 No. 1

These oil sketches were done very quickly (approx 15 - 45 minutes a piece) on paper as skin temperature exercises...subtly shifting and exaggerating the warm and cool to create more interest and help aid me in my figure work.  I did about 4 of them a day -- each one is approximately 14 x 11" and were referenced from either photos or previous pencil sketches.  I have more that I will post at a later date...

  4. Incredible studies Eric. There's so much to learn from working fast, reminds me of the egg timer poses back in art school.
