Art class, second half of term

Hurrah, I got an A- for my mid-term mark! Very gratified and inspired to work even harder.

On Tuesday we started the last half of the term, and the expectations are ramping up as we begin painting from a live model.

The class agenda.

We are not allowed to take pictures of the model, but we were allowed to photograph the model stand after she left so that we could work on the drapery as part of our homework.
This was the third exercise, where we used a monochromatic colour scheme to paint the model. We took this home, and for homework we are to refine the painting and particularly work on the drapery.


This was the first exercise, a black silhouette of the model - a negative space painting.

Our second work in black and white, another silhouette, this time with internal figure lines and some modelling of the background.
