Centered

This is the drawing from a new oil painting I am just starting. I am really excited for it because I like the composition(not shown here) a lot. I don't produce oil paintings as much as I would like, primarily because it is difficult to get quality compositions and reference.

Also, I have a new addition to my favorite contemporary artists list. I went to Doug Fryer's show this past weekend, it was inspiring work. His strong traditional art skills make his loose landscape painting work. In my opinion, loose work is much harder to pull off then tight realistic work.

Your sketches are always so inspiring, I love this. I agree with you about it being harder to pull off loose work than tight realistic. Doug Fryer's work is great.
