Spectacle...365 Days of Drawing.

Nothing like making a spectacle of yourself with a public drawing challenge! This a drawing from last week which I put paint on today. A super interesting face of a teen student from my workshop last week.

The other, is my fast class demo yesterday at The California Art Institute yesterday. A value study of the set-up, a woman slicing bread, largely geared toward a more high key mid-value painting.

The strength of a value pattern makes a painting, I think. This left me less than enthusiastic to take it to a larger painting. Hmmm...could it have been because the model wanted to faint half the time? It wasn't the easiest of classes.

So sensitive and very beautifully painted. I love the subtle color.

Love the bits of red and green you
used in your model's hair, works so well with the colours in the shirt.
