Figure Painting demo by Jacob Collins

Be sure and visit http://grandcentralacademy.blogspot.com/2010/02/jacob-collins-demo-week-1.html  to watch the progress of a figure painting painted by Jacob Collins alongside of his students.  This method is very similar to the approach taught at the Angel Academy in Florence.  Note the length of time and care that goes into getting a drawing/cartoon to work from.

Just Finished!

Here are a couple of pieces that I just finished and am really fond of.  They are inspired by Cinderella and the fairytale pumpkins that I love to see in the fall.  The paintings are titled "Principe" and "Principessa"- italian for prince and princess. I just got them in their frames which are wide brown with gold inner edges-very striking.  The paintings are being juried for the WMAS - Exhibition at the Kalamazoo Institute of Art this spring.  If you live locally, stop in!
