I will upload more pictures in this post as I have more time scanning them all. So, please check this post every once in a while. You might suddenly find there are couple of new paintings pop up. Enjoy! And, as always, crits, questions, and comments are always welcomed. These are all done using Gouache. Reason I didn't use oil is because I am allergic to the solvent. And, I have not YET convinced that water based oil paint is as superior as the actual oil paint.
This is a painting I did in Fall 2008. The model (Aja) is absolutely great and professional!
Here is the close up shot. To be quite honest, this is done in a spur of the moment. I tend to belabor my composition making process before I commit to the real painting. So, please forgive the compositional errors. I will fix them and move some elements here and there when I have the time.
