Pigeon, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

9 x 12" • July 2011 • oil on mounted linen

Pigeon is a really sweet and pleasant model. It has been great working with her. I am still working on a larger size study of her that includes the whole figure.

Here is my painting from the last 2 weeks of June. It measures 24 x 24" and is oil on board*.

*It is actually a board that I had my dad mount on stretcher bars, super heavy.

I'm starting to think I should just stick to boards because I love how I can push the paint around really easy. hmmm...

Here is the painting from June week one and two. When I bring my paint box back home I might work on the shadow side of his face a bit more, some of the browns in there are a bit harsh.

Tonight is the last night for the current painting I am working on. Wish me luck :)
