Figure drawings


These are quick little drawings to find what interests me about the figure.

Blind Contour of Mark English and Polo

I have been doing lots of Blind Contour Drawing- training the hand and eye to act as one without looking at the paper. These two are from this mornings breakfast with Mark. I have also done about 40 pastel sketches of polo hores and riders, this is part of a commision as well for the Sarasota Polo Club. I'm going to scan all the peices and have them on her shortly- as well as the rest of the blind contours-
thanks for viewing and come back shorty for more updates

"Big" Exhibition 2009

I just found this footage of my two man painting show with Justin Runfola, held at the Ringling College in January. This was an extremely successful show- it was packed all night- the band was kickin- and we sold to paintings. Thanks for coming out to this event- it was a blast to work on.

Second Round

Happy Fourth everyone! Let not forget the need to keep freedom.

I recieved a call a week or so ago about a gallery in Saratoga Springs, New York asking me if they could represent my polo work. This is great, I'm really glad the word got out. So I have been busy thinking about polo some more and preparing surfaces to paint on. The images below are some of the paintings in progress- just the first, initial lay in of the composition.

For this next group of paintings, I'm going to try and really push different aspects about the sport. Either the compositions-color-drawing well-drawing bad if it calls for it- My focus is to continue to learn about painting-and getting somewhere in the process. Also, I uploaded a landscape in process as well. I'm going to have a landscape show sometime this year-more on that later.

I also took a photo of all the recent THANK YOU letters that I have made for various clients and friends. And I have also been reading about George Bellows for the 100th time- hes awesome.

I hope you enjoy the post- thanks for reading.
