Room with a view

A painting I did since I found a bit of time for it. I put a little more time and planning into this and I think it turned out. As always, the background is a stretch for some sort of subtle vehicle for the painting of the figure that I really enjoy.

below is the detail:

This one turned out nice, its a drawing of a flower with a little girl attached to it.

Alphonse Mucha is my favorite artist ever, I thought this channeled his style a little.

figure 47

This ones a couple months old and not as smooth as the more recent drawings using my new method but I think it turned out nice. I understand many of these figure drawings are less popular because, lets face it, this guys not particularly beautiful, but for me it is a more accurate drawing with a good natural look to it. A natural feeling to a person is key for me and is missing from much of the artwork that I find around these days.
I read somewhere that practice with a focus on what you are learning as opposed to the results is a more effective method to improve. I think I have always been naturally inclined to work in this way which has left me with stacks of sketchbooks full of half finished drawings. It also has a downside as I look over my work now and find very few really good finished work to show for all my time. Oh well, I am typically happy just to create art.
