Red Top

Usually for these quick paintings I stick to headshots. Once I get into arms and legs and hands etc it becomes a lot more complicated and time consuming and let's face it....more like work. But , I have been thinking that I should start to do more than just here's a torso! Eventually at this rate, slowly but surely I'll get to full figures :)

Awesome art. Are you using canvas paper? What size? I've started acrylic painting (Portraits) about a year and a half ago on canvas but it takes me forever.
Any tips?

These are mostly done in my sketchbook on plain canson sketchbook paper.
I just picked up a pad of canvas paper to try it out for fun so we'll see.
these are all very small between3-6 inches wide, pretty close to the size they appear on your screen.

I wish I could work in small sizes. I usually use 24"x36" or a bit smaller.
I saw the artwork of Wonder Woman you did for Wonder Woman Day (I think). Beautiful stuff.
Love your artwork Michael.

You should try working small, you might be surprised by the results. It takes a long time to fill 24x36 worth of canvas space and playing around at a smaller size might open your eyes to new ways of doing things.
