I apologize for the unscheduled absence from Artistcoveries. A sudden illness sent me to the hospital last week. I’m now home recuperating and hope to resume my art studies in the next week or two. Meanwhile, I’m enjoying a lot
Although I made a lot of my usual mistakes in this painting, overall I think I’m fairly pleased with it — except for the color choices.
I’ve been working on chiaroscuro drawings, using graphite and shading techniques to create form.
I’m finding that I have an “old-fashioned” spirit when it comes to painting, and that’s how this painting feels to me.
I love the looseness and relaxed quality I can get by making these timed sketches, such as this “Weeping Woman” – the final pose of my class today.
