Seated male nude figure study

Male figure in a contemplative pose, painting on paper reduces the drying time significantly and also looks like acrylic in the end, but that changes with the final layer of damar varnish when the original gloss of the oil comes back to life.

Male portrait 6x9 oil on paper

Second oil sketch from the same day, looks more like its been done with acrylics rather then oil because of the paper's quick absorbing properties, also the values look lighter then actual, the painting will get the proper finished look once a final layer of varnish is been applied.

"Girl with a dragon tattoo" female nude painting

Painted this one last night on a prepared paper, it responds differently then the canvas and the oil dries quicker, forces me to do more deliberate brushstrokes that gonna stay permanently on the surface, less thinking is more action.
