New Painting - March 27th

MARCH 27, 2006
This is the piece in progress. It's on halftone gesso and done in Generals white charcoal and pencil with a bit of sepia colored pencil. The hightlights are hit with white gouache...
Today I taught a class in Philadelphia at the University of the arts. I have a great class of budding illustrators and I have been promising to do a demonstration for a while. Today I sketched, prepared a board, did a drawing and full oil painting for the weary onlookers. I worked from 9-4. The man is an example of how I work without reference. I kind of like to do that and do wonder if someday I might enjoy doing this more.
This is the Top Hat painting.
