These two figures are drawings I did in Scott Noel's class in the last two weeks. Both are in pastel and done of Reeves BFK paper at 18 x 24 or maybe slightly larger, 22 x 30. These drawings were really a fight to get after the principles that Scott is going for and teaching in class; drawing form without drawing the value exactly as we see it, but in a more deliberate way to try and express the form more, almost like a statue, concentrating on plaanes, big changes in form. So you ignore things like local color etc. While I think I won some part of the battle I lost some too, so I am not that happy with them. But I can see an improvement. Hey, only 5000 more to go!
