Wow! Impressive. Love the concept of a landscape painting as the "background".

Congratulations - I hear you don't get to do oils as much as you'd like to. On this one, I like the way the grays make the colors on the flesh tones pop.

Enjoy the Magic Kingdom. You've earned it.

This is cool Dave. The painting behind her is a very cool effect for a lot of reasons, I can see you doing a whole series of these.

Amazing oil, you keep doing great. If you keep improving this way, there is no limit for your skills.

And about your post talking about night class and anathomy, I think you are right, we need to know how the muscles look, shape and move, but not always the name. Also suggesting the shape of a hand is far more important than making little pointless details. So you are right, going to a class to have live models to draw, great idea, listening to the proffesor that is angry because you have better skills than him, not..:)

Great work! I love the composition. And thanks a lot for the heads-up on the Leyendecker book below. I've been waiting for a collection of his work. Ordering that sucker now.
