I've been sketching and painting people lately - and so it led me to dive into all of my reference photos. Way leads on to way, so I had to then change my file system and get organized. Even though it took some time, I was reminded of places I have painted, views and scenes I was taken by that I wanted to paint. I did throw 20-30 percent away but not too much. Now I can find the subjects I want to paint by type. The above sketch is from a reference photo that my brother took at the College World Series. I really like the subject and background and I want more baseball - shouldn't be difficult to get my hands on more. Great thing about the College world series is how close the fans can get to the players and the action.
This one is a small (6x6) sketch of my daughter and her friend Kelsey doing each other's makeup. This was a great exercise in painting the head at different angles. Loomis/Proko methods really worked for this.
