Live drawings at a primary school

Yesterday I did a live drawing session at a primary school. The class participated on a contest and won. The big price was a caricature-artist (me) to draw all students of the class :)) Here are a few examples:

Acryl / Oil proces

Here is another painting i've been working on.
The setup in acrylics is quite loose, using only burnt sienna.
I tried to keep the oil part as loose as possible at most of the areas.

Summerstorm - Oil on panel -

I try to keep things loose lately in my landscape paintings.
For this painting I did that by using brushes that are not too small so I Couldn't focus on details too much.
Total time spend: 3hrs

Acrylic painting on 400gr cold-pressed paper

Another good evening of painting

I've been painting with acrylics for several years now... normaly I use acrylics to make an underpainting for wich I later use to paint over with oils.

Lately I like to expand te possibilities with acrylics and not use it only as an underlayer but as a painting itself.

Must say...i't good fun!! Because the paint dries much quicker you're forced to work fast. There are several mediums on the market to slow down the process of drying but for this painting I wanted to keep it fast and loose in a way... so I decided not to use any mediums. Only acrylics, water and 400gr. coldpressed paper.
The size of the painting is 30x40cm and it's done in 2 hours sharp (from sketch till final)

BTW: I'm always open for any critiques from the other painters out there!!

Pope final version
