Pafa Week 3
The Grind! That's what this last week has been, basically from hanging my show at the AXD gallery, through teaching at DCAD (An extra class to help out my buddy Scott) and finishing my storyboard. This culminated in me literally pulling an all-nighter from Monday morning till I hit the sheets Tuesday night at 6pm. I sleep till 7 this morning and felt much better. I had to stay up to finish working on Draw! for a preview in Aletr-Ego mag, and do my painting homework of a pair for Doug Martenson's class. Luckily it came oiut ok, but there was a time where I was so tired and so frustrated I wanted to wipe it all off and snap the board in half like a ninja.
I rallied in school dispite the lack of sleep Tuesday, but by the afternoon I was seriously slagging...and my Art History class was the final blow. The room was dark and warm, a deadly combo. I sit in the front row, so with about 20 minutes to go I had to leave, or just fall dead asleep infront of the professor--which would have been rude. I really like the class and Dr. Richards and wish I could have hung in there.
This painting was done in Doug Martenson's class Tuesday after lunch so my energy bar was at abot 60% for a bit. It was painted on gessoed board, in a deep dark greenish prematura. next we knocked in drawing of the figure done by using ultramarine blue, and then the wipeout of the lights with a paper towel.
Next, still using the limited palette of quidnacrome red, cad yellow light, ultramarine blue and white, I went in and started adding clolor and trying to draw back in also. We had 3 sessions so we had maybe a bit over an hour it seems, maybe more or less. This was the same model we had last week.
