    Very, very good! And they seem to be done with a quick painting approach, alla prima ....

    Very moist! Love them. Lots of feeling captured, with lots of movement in the technique.

    Thanks for all the kind words!
    I thought you might enjoy this collage of progress shots from the Self Portrait.

    I use the same process for all my paintings.
    I trace a sketch of the outline and then use a reference pinned next to the canvas.
    I always blow the reference up to the same size as the painting and have it focused on the area I'm painting.

    Quite interesting indeed. Although Your approach follows a quite simple process rather than a mere intuituve burst, I confirm the outcome looks fresh and spontaneous, thus pleasantly painterly ...
