Just a few sketches and speedpaintings. The bottom two black and whites were done as a 1 hour speedpainting demonstrations at the Art Institute of California, San Diego. I then used one for another demonstration in my Monday morning class on how to add basic color to a B&W image.

Here is a recent digital painting of Jonothan from the weekly life drawing/painting session that I host at the Art Institute of California, San Diego from 6-9pm every Thursday night. I saved my progress after every 20 minute session for a total of 120 minutes (2 hours) for the painting using Photoshop. I used 3 brushes: an elliptical brush, a textured round brush, and a soft round brush.
