Painting From Life

There is literally no other practice for an artist more powerful than to paint from life. Please look at the second blog I've started about Painting Every Day. I am following in the tradition of Duane Keiser to produce a painting a day.

The following are block-ins. I'm working on three small paintings at a time. The reasons are both technical and pragmatic. At some point, the paint becomes too wet to paint into and needs to set-up, or become "tacky"; the other is to change focus when a subject becomes too complicated or boring.
