St George rides again

I can't imagine why anyone would go hunting for dragons or other wild animals in the nude, but here's a depiction of Saint George, who killed the original dragon outside the shores of Beirut. I am upset with the usurious licensing practices of the software shark Oracle, and that shows, I guess.

This is acrylics on linen, ca 70 x 80 cm, not complete yet. I think both the background and the foreground need a little work...

Friday the thirteenth

This time, a couple of paintings on canvas, approx. 50 x 80 cm, acrylic paint.
Probably around an hour on the first, the second in half an hour.

I didn't bring a sensible set of colors to the session, and spent too much time
messing about, mixing and remixing. Next time, I am supposed to bring
only three colors.

Guy Fawkes day

Some more chalk sketches, all on gray paper, ca 50 x 70 cm.

The first three were done in 5 minutes each (on purpose!). The two at the end took some 20 minutes apiece. Red and white chalk.
