The first formal critique of the term is this morning. I have my portfolio ready to display and turn in. I love critiques and learn so much from them. For the ‘occasion’ I promised to make lemon bars to enjoy while we peruse each others art work. We have in addition to our term work, two master studies to turn in. I chose a portrait by Monet and a seated figure by Domenic Cretara. For my interpretation I chose to do self portraits. We are supposed to work from life so I am cheating by working from computer! I posed for both self portraits using the web cam on my mac and then drawing from the screen image.
I haven’t posted any of my class work yet but will after I get the portfolio back. I am no where near mastering figure drawing but I do see an improvement from my work of two years ago. So, slowly, I am progressing.
