This is my first figure from Advance Figure painting w/Tomutsu..about 2.5 hours; (16 x 20 on utrecht canvas limited palette: white, yellow ochre, terra rosa, tranp red oxide, burnt umber and ultra-marine blue) -- having Quick Studies the day before helped my confidence in getting skin tones down and worrying to adjust them later.. sometimes later never comes but mostly you get a shot.. next one, I hope to get more work done on the hands and feet but I kind of dig.. (at least for the commensurate hour!)
Larry Z's workshop - a new model but she held some great poses.. I had a "run-in" at the security desk ( ask me about Morons when you see me!).. so didn't get settled down enough for the first few drawings so only a few are not too wonky.. ( next two are 10 minutes each)
Saturday a.m. in Henry Yan's ... Henry actually said, "Kevin - don't draw too much like me!" i think he was just busting me for whatever.. it's great when he tells you he is seeing things at a new level from just a month ago! yes! - below of Wendy - about 12 minutes ( screw'd up the long pose.. )
below Kelli Peach from Army street tuesday night.. like this.. just the key elements.. she is a great model I think! 10mins..
First painting - only 'bout 2 hours on board 11 x 14 for clothed figure.. very nervous and tight.. did not get the headshape complete.. oh well.. portents of better things to come ?! i hope so!
