Figure Paintings from 2009

For me, figure painting is WAY harder then figure drawing! My theory behind that is because you have the ability to close in an area before you start shading it in when working with pencil or charcoal. With Paint, You have all your different colors, and no idea where each of the area separates. Your filling space with a thick brush hoping you don't get paint where it shouldn't be.
These two separate paintings are from different classes I had at Emily Carr. The top one was when I was more ambitious with my color choices, the bottom was made when I was focusing on proper anatomy.
