|Day one, my first timid charcoal. I couldn't find the paintings|
I threw in the trash yesterday. I wasn't upset.
|Today, portrait #2, I'm getting the idea, but I feel the need for something that|
gives me a blacker black--pastel. Make a note.
|Linda is making a come back. pretty fair.|
|I'm getting the drift with red/green palette. She still looks|
like she has a goiter.
|The beautiful model I made look like a guy with a bucket on his head.|
|The gloriously beautiful young woman I made look like a transvestite.|
This model is the instructor's daughter. She's a knock out.
Meanwhile my knees did better. I wore my knee support, found a high stool and sat most of the time. I also found a parking area and entrance on the same level as the studios. Big find. Solves everything. Tomorrow, I'll take advantage. Facial measurements, skin tones and limited palettes were the discussions. Less on the palette the better was the official opinion. Vianna's favorite portrait artists are Sargent, Yan and Rembrandt. I have a few books to order from Amazon. She also was still using Andrew Loomis's figurative dimensions. Those came from my very first art book, Figurative Drawing by Andrew Loomis. My dad gave it to me when I was ten. I drew every diagram in there. Nice to know, I got my first lessons from the best.
