Training as Ashley Wood Junior

Here’s an artist I really like, Ashley Wood.

There is something amazing with his style, so rough it’s immediately recognizable but almost abstract at the same time. As if all his paintings were thick with dust in the air.

Well, my title made me laugh, I’m not really trying to be Ashley Wood junior, but want it or not, reproducing painting from the masters is the best way to practice a style.
Just to make sure: all the rights goes to his work, and so on, I’m not planning on making anything with that painting. except practice.

So here it is. It’s not done yet, but you can see the first layer.

There’s other stuff going on, but I’ll post them on monday! :) Be patient!

New Start

Well,
Obviously, the first week isn’t especially entertaining.

In order to have a real fresh start, I decided to whiten everything I had done so far:
the tests, the incompletes, the not good enought or even those I just got tired of looking.

Fresh start

So here you go, dozens of white canvases.

Now all I need is inspiration….

Oh okay, I’ll post something I did two weeks ago in order to keep the interest. I know my dirty studio floor is not so captivating.
Here is my favorites from a live drawing session I went two weeks ago.
