Sketch study based on Heinrich Lossow’s “The Sin”
Did my favorite Sargent piece as well and accidentally spilled tea all over it 💁🏻

Hi

I think it’s my favorite portrait; not my best, but my favorite.

Been working on a few big projects lately so all I can post are these little studies, but I think there a charm to them being so tiny and loose. Idk, I like it, I’m having fun, I want her pants.

Did this little focus study, making things brighter or darker, more or less detailed

I think that one taught me one of the most important lessons, which is just how big and exaggerated the abstractions need to be to break the “too much like a photo” effect. Even though I felt like I was just slapping on paint for 5 hours, no blending involved, no small brush in sight, it still wasn’t enough.
Sometimes I like figuring out what I’m doing wrong just as much as I like the “this is good shit” moments.

If you look closely you could see the traces of an “I hate this shit imma smear it all fuckit” episode on the wall and ceiling

Woke up with a vengeance to finish that one (not something that happens often) and actually did it. Shocked. Needs a bit of yellow glazing on that bright wall to bring it all together, but beyond that it’s done
