These are some oil paining studies I made for my figure painting and still life classes.

One thing I love to do is to take an old painting that is lacking in life and just begin adding to it and changing it, often using unexpected and vivid colors, or however I feel that day. It always interests me how something completely new and unexpected can come out of the old if you’ll just allow yourself to experiment and follow your heart!

Ah art! The hidden lessons you hold.
