Brief update

(Need to click image to make it less blurry) This figure painting was done in July, but never completed since quite a few sessions were missed (cancelled class, model taking a day off, and a day out of town)  Here, I tried a new approach for figure painting—transfer drawing method!  The idea is to draw out the whole model on paper, and transfer the drawing onto canvas.  Then, paint it in w/out worrying about measuring things.  I’m not quite sure I like this method–since it feels a lot less intuitive and I kind of enjoy figuring out problems while painting, but I can see why some artists do it, as it can save a little time also.

I’ll be part of a music video gallery show next month!  So get ready ; ).
