some stuff from last semester

This one is from a workshop by Vincent Desiderio, who was a visiting artist at our school for a couple of days last semester. For those of you unfamiliar with his work, he`s a great painter and you should definitely check him out. On the more technical side, he talked a lot about light and volume. Yet the much more interesting part of the workshop involved sharing his views on arthistory in a series of lectures. It is always very inspiring to have the privilege listen to artists who are passionate about what they do and who care to share their opinions and information with others. In short, I really enjoyed the workshop.

This is a sketch of one of the still life rooms. Like almost all these images it was done in one sitting, oil on paper.
This one is a quick (40 min or so) colour sketch for the longer study below.
