Ender and Other Sketches

I thought I'd add some new sketches. The two earth-toned sketches are from one of my sketchbooks and the other is a digital image I did on a whim.

Fish Headed Man

Oil on Canvas 30" x 36" (images are cropped)
This is another 3rd term project I finished for my Contemporary Figure Painting class with Kent Williams. The assignment was to acquire a large fish (in this case a beautiful New Zealand Snapper and incorporate it into a painting as the central focus. We also had to include a figure so I combined the two into a somewhat disturbing creature. I collaged the newspaper to the canvas with matte medium. My father is the sleeveless human model I worked from. I thought I would show you the piece in a 3-part progression to give a sense of how I approached the piece.
