New Painting studies

[gallery link="file" columns="2"] Was messing around with some of my old Paintings yesterday and ended up getting sucked back into that way of thinking. Here are two studies I have been working on most of the night and this morning. They are not fully there yet, but I am really enjoying this direction. I need to work on showing a bit more detail and getting the images to smear more at the same time. It does feel more like I am working with oil paint this time around.
