With Myspace, Facebook, Blogger and now Twitter, I've sorely ignored my blog. I think it is time for it to be revitalized once again. In time I will change the layout aiming toward a sleeker look. I hope to be posting more often from the work I am doing in my two art classes. I hope you'll enjoying watching my new steps.
This week I took on Intermediate Drawing and Figure Painting. In drawing I will be working mostly in pastel and later in watercolor. I will be doing some of the same exercises I did in painting class last semester, like the perspective study and master studies. In figure painting I will be working in oil once again.
Today was the first meeting of the weekly painting class. She lectured quite a bit but let those of us who were prepared paint from the model she'd hired for the afternoon. But first she played this little video for us. We were all so inspired! Take a look, it's awesome.
No instruction today so we just did what we wanted. I'm not sure what I did here!!! I was working in very low light which was difficult for me, my eyes hurt! I will have to position myself with more light if I want to SEE what I'm doing! This weekend I have to gather some art supplies and be ready to work hard the next few months. This is going to be both fun and challenging!
