Getting Back into the Groove
It seems like forever since I have been to either painting class or figure drawing. Yesterday I was able to go back to both.
I won’t bother you with a lot of words on the subject.
Here is some of what I worked on:
The drawing for this one I made a few days ago, but since I had some more time in class I drew a version of it on another canvas.
I don’t normally draw directly onto the canvas like this, so I realized when I started to apply paint that it was going to completely wipe out my drawing. So now I am going to wait for the paint to dry and then try to fixatiff the drawing. Not sure if that will work or not, but it’s worth a shot.
I had another commitment in the evening, so I was only able to attend the first two hours of figure drawing class. I appreciated it very much anyhow. Obviously I felt a bit rusty, but I am so very glad that I was able to go again.
This last painting isn’t one that I worked on in class. I’ve been working on it at home a little bit here and there for a friend.
Hopefully for the next few months I will have more regular updates and more FINISHED paintings to share with you. I was explaining my blog to someone last night and I told them that I consider it kind of a virtual refrigerator where I can put my drawings and photos up to share with all of you.
