Two Small Figurative Oil Studies from Peggi Kroll Roberts DVD by Texas Contemporary Artist Nancy Standlee

Figurative Oil Study from the Peggi Kroll Roberts DVD: Limited Strokes
7x9 on canvas panel

This 30 minute DVD was all about limiting the strokes in the painting and forcing to use enough paint to create the frosting like surface. These DVD lessons are designed to breakdown the painting fundamentals into "one-idea-at-a-time" exercises. I think I failed this one because I rebelled and didn't want to count my painting strokes as I was just so intent on getting paint down - maybe next time. If you'd like to read more about the DVD's Peggi has available, go HERE to her website.


Figurative Oil Study from the Peggi Kroll Roberts DVD: Simplified Figure Proportions
9x7 on Canvas Panel

This lesson was about basic figure measurements and proportion guidelines. Each DVD lesson concentrates on one subject and theme. This was about 44 minutes in length and explains how to use some standard measurements for an 8 head figure for correct placement of various body parts. This is an excellent study if you want to paint the figure in story telling situations. 
This was study #9 and #10 so I have two more to complete for the 12 DVD set..woo hoo..
