First Figure Painting
We finally started to paint in figure painting class. I must say that my first attempt kicked everybody Else's azz. In my opinion of course. This was a 3 hour with breaks in between. The instructor (Carl Johnson) just wanted a monochromatic piece. That would explain the lack of color. It was done in the typical technique. First I drew it out with black paint on top of a burnt sienna acrylic underpainting. Then I blocked in the darks and worked from dark to light. And Da Daaaa. Well not bad for my first one. The second one came out kinda wack. But it still held a second place ranking in my opinion.
