Cast Hall and Alumni Painting and Drawing
This is the painting I did during the quarterly PAFA Alumni Drawing and Painting gatherings that the school hosts. It brings in both some current students and many many former PAFA students going all the way back to the 60's. Its a great mixer for the school and I've met and made many friends from these past events. I set up and painted these two cast which were a lot of fun! It was a warm-cool mix which is a lot of fun to play with. The casts are a challenge between their own patina/local color and the lighting conditions and the cast hall really looks great, especially since they spruced up all the casts a few years back.
