Painting Class

18 Mar

I finished up my painting class at the City Arts Center (now Oklahoma Contemporary) way back in November. I had a good time, and I found myself at the end wishing it wasn’t already over! It was different than I expected, but I really learned a lot. Every week the teacher would give us a photocopy to paint from (you could do what you wanted, but I think he frowned on that a bit). The images were mostly women, either a portrait or a full body shot. In the past I’d generally kept away from figures because figure drawing isn’t something I excel at (we look at people everyday, so when something isn’t in pretty close to perfect proportion it’s noticeable). So all of the paintings really got me out of my comfort zone, but I feel so much better about painting people now! And I came out with 3.75 paintings that I’m pretty happy with (the yellow one needs some work still).DSC02342 DSC02337 DSC02339 DSC02340
