Simple Study

Two weeks ago, I started this small figure study. I began with a quick under painting to block in the major lights and darks. I let the first layer of paint dry. Then I put down a rough pass of color. Next week, I will add more color and any final touches.

During this semester, I have had more time to experiment with paint. I am beginning to learn a lot about myself, my patience level, the styles of painting that I like and the techniques that I am interested in pursuing. The transition from sculpture over to drawing and painting has been a challenging but fascinating one. I have found that small, simple studies, like this one, teach incredibly valuable lessons.
