Crimson Daggers - daily studies

About a week ago Dave Rapoza posted about getting people together (virtually) to do daily drawing studies. I decided to answer this call to awesome and try to do some routine art push ups in addition to my work routine. Below are the studies I've done so far independently and with the group. We've been studying anatomy from Andrew Loomis and doing still life paintings. I'm stoked because I've been getting up between 6 and 7am most mornings since it started. I've been a night owl for a long time with morning envy, so it's been a nice change of pace.

These are sorted chronologically, oldest at the top, newest at the bottom (ending with the pear still life I did this morning).

I'm gonna stay brave and hopefully sustain the hour or two of morning study each day. Rock on!

Excellent light observation on that last still life, Pete!

Thanks man! I just put two more up here too:

The onion in the last still life was way fun to paint.
