Michael Malm Painting Workshop (continued)

I completed day four of the workshop today. It has been well worth the time. Mike is an excellent teacher and has really helped me hone my observational abilities. I've especially gained some new insight into seeing and painting warm and cool colors, which has been something I've struggled with over the years.

I'm posting a head study I painted during today's class. What you see here took approximately two hours. Sorry for the quality. It's a cell phone photo, so the quality isn't the greatest and the colors are off.

I'm sad to say it, but until this week, it had been a couple of years since I had painted the figure from a live model. I've really struggled with it and really need to paint more regularly.
