My Class Demo -What was I thinking?

Class demo at The California Art Institute: What was I thinking? 18 x 24

Keep the skin tone overal cool
Catch the rim light on her hair
Feel 'it'
Make the separation of light and shadow strong but subtle
Connect with the sitter

Feel 'it'
Feel 'it'
Feel 'it'

THIS IS WORKING, at least for now.

Beautiful Work Johanna! I love the texture and really looseness of your work. It flows magically!

I am always amazed at how you manage to talk, TEACH, and demo all at the same time... and do them all WELL!!!

What was =I= thinking as I contemplated your latest work? "Stately," "distinguished," "educated," "affluent."
