So far this semester is really flying by, it's amazing how fast a week goes when I am out of the house every day between going to school as a student and then teaching. On top of finishing off a very heavy last storyboard for Secret Saturdays, X-9 and finally getting Draw! 15 to the printers I am just beat down into the swamp. As a result I feel I really haven't "CLICKED" yet at school. I guess I miss my old routine and classes a bit. The new classes I don't feel the swing with yet, except my still life class with Joe Rupinski. She's awesome and really is the type of teacher I like, one who explains a lot! I mean, why else go to a class with a teacher? I have a teacher now who says the more he talks the less creativity I have. Wha-Wha-Wha-Whaaat? I don't agree with that at all.
Anyway the still life room has a large aray of still life set up, maybe 20? And you could paint most from several angles. I of course chose the one with the sun blasting through the window. I did a little skecth in pencil, then a study, which isn't finished and I will continue to work on it. I might do the final painting as a diptic, maybe on board. At this angle the sun comes in and eventually blinds you, so I'll have to work fast, and maybe finish from a photo at night? We have a few weeks to work on each one. this is still a work in progess as I adjust the composition.
