This is my finals week at PAFA. I've had my finals in Life painting with Renee Foulks and my final class in 19th Century Art History, tomorrow my final crit in Animal Drawing and then my last class is Monday in Portrait painting.
The painting above is my final for Renee's class and it was painting in my living room, my friend Alina posed for it. I did it mostly from life, from the first pose which you can see below on the blog. Then I worked a bit from a photo and then Alina sat again for the final pose where I just concentrated on her head. There are many little areas I need to go back into, the sofa, the wall or light area and a few touches on the figure, but it was done to this stage for my class crit.
next week is crit week at Uarts in the Storyboard classes I teach, then is Winter Break till January--and boy can I use the break!
