Figure Drawing #4

This is a recent figure drawing I did in the class I taught. Unfortunately the class was only 2 hours, which is no where near enough time to do a full drawing. Plus, being the teacher limited my time even more. But I revisited this one for 30 minutes last night, cleaning up lines and things. Done in Nu pastel on 18" x 24" paper.

Sketchbook #11

A new drawing. I love to draw in my sketchbook, and may have already said that I attribute any talent I have to my sketchbook. I am really interested in faces, likenesses, this is Steven Spielberg. Hopefully I've captured it, I also really like the very subtle caricature/stylization, so subtle that you almost don't recognize it without looking closely.

Finally the painting of this previous drawing. I like to paint them then they sit around for a few weeks while I decide whether I like them or not. I am okay with this one, but I took this picture using the flash from the edge and really like the light right side progressing to dark(the actual painting doesn't have that effect) so I think I will get back and rework the background. I would be happy to hear peoples opinions.
