Here's some more of my figures from the same time and place. I'll try to keep the notes short.
<b>What:</b> Charcoal on strathmore.
<b>Goals:</b> Overlapping of forms, foreshortening, contra costra, negative space, and how the form relates to it's enviroment. (sitting IN the chair as opposed to sitting ON the chair).
<b>Technique:</b> More semi-blind contour drawing. (My MAIN love. Read my profile on my website!).
<b>Self-Discovery:</b> I LOVE Vine Charcoal and regular rich dark and heavy charcoal, a little too much. lol
<b>Difficulties:</b> I need more time in order to not hurry parts such as the hands, face. They were easy to block in during the Vine charcoal stage, but difficult to define in such a short time with the main charcoal.
Well, I can't keep the descriptions short. lol For those who have BEEN to school, I'm sure you'll recognize the other elements of particular study in the other ones. However, if anybody would like me to discuss them here, I'm more than happy too! (obviously! lol. I LOVED my class. I want more more more! But I have to wait! wait! wait! aaacckkk!!! Meanwhile, I continue life drawing SESSIONS, which many are also drawn from, whenever I can work it into my schedule.)
There's also a chisled cement sculpture (actually 4 sculptures or more, but I haven't included 3 on site) from Life Sculpture.
(My site, consists of my journey of art. I was called a liar, to put it bluntly, by same person I mentioned in my first post. I hope this explains why I'm rambling on. In any case, this 'dispute' opened the door for me to brag about my classes which I loved dearly. (not bragging about my art, but the challenges of tackling the elements.) Fair warning for the next person! lol
Hmmmm, I think I see why no one ever asks me about my grandson and his art. Oh well.. Your loss!!!!) No apologies from this ol gal. Life's too short to hide enthusiasm.
