We're going to take a little side trip now and then so that I can work on my figure paintings with which I just don't have the confidence I'd like to have. I'm very confident and spontaneous with sign painting and with charcoal drawings. I can draw monsters and costumes, weapons armor, and buildings all from the imagination if need be, but figure painting in oil still gives me a lot of trouble. In the end I produce a nice painting, but I often go in circles and pull my hair out during the process so I want to get a little more experience behind me and feel like this is the way to go about it.
I will share some, but not all of these studies here, and I will sell them for $50.00 each to patrons on my Patreon site.
