I can also have fun. . .




The face was done in drawing. I had an a-ha moment today when I was working on a models' face. I used burnt umber, yellow ocher, and indigo. Suddenly, I was engaged with the paint and the model. (Usually with the exercise I am like, "This is so lame." When you are not getting the concept, you do the motions until you get it.) It was the first time I actually "got" this exercise. The paint becomes like clay on your brush. I was excited. My teacher saw it, too.

Then above that you see my palette!
