I started this blog as a way to track my daily painting. Since then lots of things have changed. I am in the studio every day and I'm teaching a lot. This blog will focus on the work that I'm doing myself and sometimes feature the work of my brilliant students.
This is the second evening this summer that I've gotten together with artist friends, hired a model and just painted. There were four of us and the three hours flew by. It's energizing to work on my own projects. Have to remember this as teaching sometimes takes precedence,
This is the underpainting in burnt sienna.
About an hour or so in. I'm working on gessoed water color paper.
2 1/2 hours. Don't want to overwork but I'll most likely go in and fix the ear but not much else.
This is a gesture paint painting that studio student Melissa Yi did during our summer workshop. She's been in the studio for the past year and a half with one on the passes I sell that let's the student attend every class I give. She's a fantastic artist and is headed to college. She'll be missed on the studio! For info on the classes here Summer Life Drawing Workshops.
