oil trials

Trials, as in tests, and as in tribulations. These are 8×8 oils done from ‘random’ reference photos – as exercises focused on speed and my feeling for brushwork. Ideally I’d like to bring what I like about drawing into the painting process.  Looking to make the brush calligraphy do what I can do with pen and ink.  Trying to keep the spontaneity, but not at the expense of clarity.

  1. hey marc, didn’t know you had a blog too, feel like link trading? :) i already put yours on mine ;)
    i’m a big fan of your pen sketches, i’m working with pen more as well these days, so i often take a peak here :)

  2. I love your work. It’s a real pleasure going over these rapidly done pieces. You have a solid handle on the gestural figure. Keep it up. Best of luck–.
