Thank you Sharon. These one have the added bonus of not being commissions, it takes away the pressure.
Somehow, though, I start thinking that it is not always easier to paint from a photo: you must be true to the photo to the millimetre.

When painting from life you can get less into details and stop as soon as you have enough of the person there.

I have recently painted a lot of still-lifes and I am getting faster and faster: I am learning when to stop.
Discussing with my tutor she said: allow the viewers to finish the picture as they want.
I am not particularly fond of vignette but I love when a painting is not only about the subject but also talks about the process of viewing and elaborating, and maybe shows some moments of that process still happening.

Mischa, you are very kind and I am really happy to know that you can see how my journey in painting is progressing.
I have refrained from taking commissions for a time, now I am slowly starting again and I hope the work I have been doing will creep into future portraits.
Mischa, what are fusions ?

Sorry, was it not you that mentioned purchasing some "Fusains tendres" (soft charcoals) a while back? The 5mm first-rate charcoals, made in France kind. I have tried ordering directly from the company but they have not responded. www.fusainsnitram.com I sent them another e-mail today. My other option is to order from my old art supplier in Florence. Wanted to check my options.

That wasn't me, maybe Zecchi is the best option.

My mistake. Zecchie's is my supplier for most of my special art materials like paper, charcoal etc. I will be looking to purchase a Anatomical figure and the archer. If you come across one please let me know.

Thanx!
