In class, we're copying a painting by Don Andrews, because we love his style so much and the way he puts figures in his scenes. 4x6 Arches 140lb cold press.

Native Dress
This is really my first attempt at a "real" figure painting, with a nearly full face, hands, and so on. The original image was a rather blurry black and white photocopy. I've been working on this for about four weeks, and I've learned a lot, but I have reached the point where I want to just call this "done" -- in the sense that I'm abandoning further work on this (at least for now).

I learned a lot, for instance that the shadows on a human face are actually red, and the face is made of planes and light and shadow, like it should be, not specific features. 

This was exhausting, finally, although I am okay with the results. Apologies for the image itself; I'm not in a space to take a better one, but will replace it when I can.

A geeky girl, with a slight artistic bent. I love to take pictures, draw a bit, and am now exploring the world of fractal art, but mostly I've been doing watercolour paintings.
