Back to School

It does not seem to matter that winter break has come and gone. Despite that fact that I hardly dented my long list of things to accomplish, I am ready to get back to PAFA. I miss the structure, the guidance and of course, my friends.

It has only been a few days and the work is already piling up. For life painting, we are beginning a 15 week pose. I am excited because I get to work on a large scale and have a chance to bring my painting to a more finished conclusion.

Here is a sketch I made of the model. I took time to analyze the pose and gesture. Next, I will make thumb nail sketches to experiment with possible compositions. Then I will make black/white value studies, as well as, color studies.

I know that this is going to be a great year!!!

Hi Christina,

I am in Renee Foulk's, Tuesday Morning, Life Painting Class.
During the Fall semesters, Renee has students working from two different models.
During the Spring semesters, however,Renee has one pose set up for the entire year.
