Life Painting

For one of my Life Painting classes, the teacher set up a model stand in the center of the cast hall. However, for the first class there would be no model. My teacher encouraged us to think about the space (Foreground, Middle ground and Background) and how to compose it.

For the next class, we had to incorporate a model into our started paintings. This exercise was great because, I had to consider the background elements of the painting before focusing on the model.
