I've been looking to these post-Impressionist painters for masterful scenes of interiors. The way they embed their personal feelings into a very mundane subject matter shows their dedication to the synthetic approach, following the work of Gauguin.

I'm working more towards including an interior for the figure to relate to in my paintings. This is a sketch I did in my house. It's 18x24" oil pastel on canvas panel. I'm hoping to create a life-size piece out it.
Here are some studies I did before school started. A friend hosted a night with a model so we could all get some figure painting in. They are small (8x10") and quick (about 45 min), so they were really more about putting down paint to describe what I saw.
