some new drawings and quick studies and paintings..
Above a quick study - about an hour and a few minutes .. this was for creative or extreme cropping and I knew I wanted to do a drinking fountain/mouth/water.. never tried it so..
Above, another qs.. just kept it loose but tried to get the values and general color together.. about 2 hours.
Above some life studies from class.. extreme color (again!) and a MC of a Tomutsu-san painting ( but we had to make our copy from black and white and develop our own extreme color plan.. a fun excercise).. the two gregory's are - left with light on him and right, ambient only.. - i think these were 40's.
Xiau-Fong and Justina from a "the-Edmunds" photo.. about 2 hours.. i like it!
Above, a two week pose of Aimee ( spelling ? ). a Great model - very graceful.. but the pose was tough to hold in all these positions.. I did not get this finished enough but may work more on it from some photo refs at the end of the 2nd session.
below a 1 hour head study from Glenn's class.. so much to learn!
Below a 1 hour figure from glenn's and then a trace of it where I idealized shapes more..
