Happy Halloween!!!!!!!

This seems as good a night as any to start this here blog. In honor of this unholy night, let's start out with some scary sketchbook stuff:

and a painting of a real bonehead:
Did that one for Alla Prima painting class a couple semesters ago. For those of you not in-the -know, Alla prima is a style of painting usually done in one sitting (this one wasn't), and one or two layers using broad, visible strokes and wet-into-wet blending. I also used a real skeleton for reference. Spooky, eh?

Well, gotta go for now, homework calls. More to come later!
