"New Years Paintings"

This New Years celebration was such a great time, ending a great year and looking forward to this special year.  After posting last I was inspired to keep painting and that's what I did, every moment I was able to I was trying to paint the people around me.  For the most part they were resting on the couch, usually that's the only time they were willing to pose (At times they were not aware I was painting them).  

These paintings are executed in a very quick manner, just capturing the essence and gesture of the subject.  I stopped myself from spending a long time rendering these paintings, I wanted to only treat them as a sketch and capture the gesture of the pose.  The longest I spent on one painting was about 45 mins.

My first painting of 2013!
