More Painting

Last night I had some free time (hard to believe! but true). So of course after a run to the Farm Market for cider and donuts I settled down to push some paint around.

Out of the drawings that I had laid out on canvas last week, Steve seemed least impressed with the hand as an in class project – so I figured that was the one I should work on at home. Here are a couple stage photos of as far as I took it last night.

This morning for class I set up and planned on working on the goat until Steve came by to show me how to put a glaze on the head (and where to put it and what color he would suggest… and all that good stuff).

Steve showed up pretty quickly, explained what he was looking for in the glaze and where I should put it and a bit about how to mix it. Then left me to my own devices.

I can’t really explain everything that he did – but I learned a lot watching him. Then I made some other minor revisions and we put it away to dry for the week.

I brought the other paintings back home (the hand, the seal and the goat) and worked on the goat for a little while longer this after noon.

Now I am back off to the studio for figure drawing class and I should be able to post those pictures in the morning.

I’m really starting to love Mondays!
