Kick

Three hour study. Spent too much time on the drawing, leading to some unfinished and flat forms and weird colors. Learned a lot about foreshortening.

Belogradchik Fortress

Three hour study. Serious issues with texture, brushstroke, and drawing. Need to manage time efficiently with environments.

 

Hands Touching

Capuchin Monkey

Three hour study. Devoting more time to background, foliage and green. Need to work on subtle details, and brushwork.

Japanese River

Three hour study. Lost a lot of time to flawed drawing, colors still an issue.

Old Indian

Three hour study. More skin, wrinkles, and cloth practice. Should have done more in the shadows, drawing still off.
