Notebook Paper Notes & Sketches

Heres a quick study I did of Bouguereau's "Le Retour de Tobie" (Tobias's Return) My note books are full of sketches like this. I do a ruff sketch with pencil, and then ink it with micron pens and sharpies.

On my Easel

God So Loved
by Jason Peck
14X18, Oil on Canvas Board
Hey Guys, Here is a painting Im just about finished with. There are still a few areas that Im going to rework a bit. This was painted on a cheap ol canvas that has a very textured weave. The weave of the canvas made painting the details especially difficult. It was even more difficult to photograph. The heavy weave catches all the light. Once its completely dry, Ill try to scan it at a high resolution.

I used my usual palette of colors. I painted nearly all the flesh tones with these colors: Flake White, Yellow Ochre Pale, Alizarin Crimson Permanent, Raw Umber, and Ultramarine Blue.  For this painting I used Gamsol, and M. Grahams Walnut Alkyd. I also used allot of Raw Umber for the drawing, because it dries fast.

Initially all of the figures in this painting where drawn from my imagination, but I eventually asked some friends to model for me to make them seem a bit more lifelike. This would have been a much better painting if I had started with models to begin with. I plan on repainting this one day on a larger smoother surface, and next time Ill draw everything from life.
