THE SUM OF THE PARTS! & APRIL'S CHALLENGE


This is how the sheet looks all finished. The tape worked fairly well but some paint still slipped underneath. Having coated the surface made it easier to clean up the dividing lines of errant paint. Overall, it is a good representation of the lesson I will be teaching.

I am looking for people within driving distance of Concord who would be interested in coming to one or more of the Advanced Portrait classes as subs. Since each class is a separate topic and doesn't depend on the previous lesson, you should have no problem. Stretching this class out over two months means life gets in the way and some of the participants can't make all five sessions. If you are interested, send me an e-mail and let me know which days you would be interested in coming.

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful messages in the past few days. It means a lot when people are cheering you on! Until I experience everything in New York, it won't feel real.

It's a new month, so I am throwing out another challenge. This month, pick an element of design: Line...Shape...Size...Direction...Color...Value...Texture. Now, keeping the same image, see how many ways you can work with that element to create a new painting or drawing. I am going to work with texture and the image in this bozzetto page.

Seeing these all together is great - some really fine work and different emotions in the faces, too.
