Figures on Playing Cards

I’ve been going to figure drawing sessions at my friend Royce Deans’ house this summer. For whatever reason, I’ve set up a challenge for myself to make small paintings on playing cards, with a pretty large brush (it’s a filbert, @.5″ wide). I can’t get too fussy with such a large brush, yet at the same time, I have to be very deliberate with each mark. Here’s some of of my recent paintings.
