Just noticed those paintings....WOW....cheeky green my favorite...nice experiments in creating and expressing ....mood thru color....really kike the way you have devided, and at the same time unified the form using those colors in their purest state....very expressive, and a real pleasure to see....also really am liking your ink drawings on those head studies...strong linework.. ....Can't wait to see your experiments and expressions, when you delve into digital ....

Hey there Mark, thanks for stopping by and for kind uplifting words been busy painting all day, but as on canvas, need to take pics before I can post Hope all is well

AnOldFriend, thanks for popping in, and no, you don't sound like an idiot at all Best way to find out about anything is to ask questions. Conté is something in between charcoal and graphite (in terms of how it feels to use), it comes in different grades.
"In 1795 Nicholas-Jaques Conté developed a method that involved mixing powdered local graphite with clay, waxes and water, firing the mixture in a kiln and forcing it into wooden casings." - quote from Blick Art Materials Thanks too, for your comments - much appreciated

cheers all and take care

Hi Glenn

Wow! thank you for your comments *blushing* I love colour and see I have a friend in you there You are so right in that it's important to go with what feels right for you (as in bright colours - comment in your thread.. ) because if you go against it, it just won't be you... Then again, experimenting and pushing the boundaries is always healthy, so I guess it's about balance and chaos all in one happy go.. I guess the full chaos for me will be when I curiously delve into digital

take care and cheers

I like this one, not for the content, but the thoughts it makes me think. The words tropical, holiday, fruit, fun, happiness come to mind, and I see that abstract is what this is all about.

But for crits, I would say placeing blue and red together can only hinder an image. Because its an abstract, most critiques aren't really valid, but colour choices do play a big role.

Wow, looks like I missed a lot here! Great to see the larger images of the heads, and it's also cool to see the variety of work that you've done. You certainly have a bold expressive style so far, and it will be interesting to see how that's affected by more and more study of the figure. Can't wait to see what's next!

Hey Frejasphere!

man, i need to get here more often - great progress! Love the bold way you use your colours - very exciting - it puts some zest and energy into the painting. Your pen is also looking great, looks like you are approaching them in a very fearless manner - keep at that! Something you might want to try with the pen is to draw without picking it up, or picking it up as little as possible. This tends to take any hairyness away and seems to add some more enrgy to the drawing.

The drawing of the woman with her face on the ground - great idea, think you could have enforced the idea some more, maybe exaggerated the way her nose and cheeks and lips press against the floor, have some of the hair drop to the surface. But very impressive overall - post more!
