For our "Tuesday Morning Gathering" this week
we fooled around with figures.
First we watched a Peggi Kroll Roberts DVD
on the proper proportions of the figure.
Then we painted from images from my "beach people" photo album.
This one is mine.
This couple walks on the beach like this every day.
She leads. He follows.
The idea was to break the figure down into simple shapes
of light and shadow.
Here is some of the great work the students came up with!
I love that they all stretch themselves
and happily try new techniques!
