Head study -- 10 of 50

Oil on canvas. 6 x 8 in. Burnt umber, raw umber, & white. A gesture sketch. (I ran out of burnt umber and switched to raw.)

Head study -- 9 of 50

Oil on canvas. 6 X 8 in. Burnt umber & white. This is a gesture sketch, done in one hour. Pretty sketchy and loose, but good training. Especially for someone who tends to be a perfectionist.

Charcoal on drawing pad. 11 x 14 in.
