Skull Painting

I’m trying to get back up to speed with my sessions, so I’m going to focus more on getting artwork done than writing about it for the next few days. I expect the subsequent posts to be fairly short.

I’m going to try and start each and every session with a figure drawing session.

The focus for this skull was supposed to be working methodically with the planes of the skull but I wasn’t able to focus as much as I liked, so I just ended up doing a random block-in.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
