Figurative paintings by Raleigh NC Fine Artist

I often paint figures as part of my streetscapes and landscapes. But lately, my focus has been painting solitary figures & nudes. I often sketch figures when I am out and about. Mostly in pencil and sometimes in watercolors. These sketches provide me with reference materials for my genre scenes. For my solitary figures, I have been relying on friends and family. But lately, I have started hiring models.

What drives me is my curiosity about people and finding ways to represent what I see. I have new figurative paintings in the works.

There are many fine figurative artists- my inspiration for figure paintings are Andrew Wyeth, Richard Schmid and Jeremy Lipking.

While I sketch people at every opportunity, it is not enough. So, I participate in figure and portrait drawing programs of Sertoma Arts Center, Village Art Circle Gallery and Artspace. And of course, I have also started working with my own models. I will be posting more on this later.

I am currently looking for models for my figurative paintings and portrait work. If you are in Raleigh area, please contact me. I am looking for indoor/ outdoor poses. Locations will be in Raleigh area. I will snap reference photos and may also sketch from life. Mostly clothed poses- you don’t need to be a professional model for these. And nude poses, if you are a professional model. May be for an hour- couple of hours at the most. If you have a model portfolio online or on Model Mayhem, please include that. You will sign a model release. Compensation will be subject to session length and your experience.
