In figure painting class we started out with a statue. We will have a live model next week! First we used charcoal to study the subject, then we removed almost all the charcoal leaving a ghost image. Then we painted the light and dark of the back ground and the light and dark of the object. That is how we are to start the live figure model, too. It was fun and I learned a lot but the three hours went by like 15 minutes! It was so fast! I wished that I had more time to work on it but it was great anyway.
