Painting heads is an addiction to me. It is what I enjoy the most and it is the work I am happiest with. I think that some much of our thinking power is dedicated to face recognition and analysis that heads are endlessly interesting.
I have not been happy with my figure paintings recently. I am unsure if my skills have deteriorated or if my eye has outstripped my hand. Hopefully this discontent heralds a breakthru in the work as it often seems. Most of my recent figure paintings have been scraped. Here are two I saved.
