Progress Report

Just a little sample of some of my drawings from my recent life drawing classes.

Over the summer I took a couple painting classes - Still Life and Figure Painting. Boy, did I enjoy it. Here are a few of the pieces, starting with my earliest.

These ones here below are the ones my teacher, Karl Gnass, took over and fixed. I tell you, he could do miracles in just 5 minutes. I'd be sitting there with a heavy hand and furrowed brow for 5 hours making a real sad excuse of a painting - then he'd come over and with a couple elegant flips of the brush, he'd layout an appealing, volumetric painting with some real value contrast. Real talented guy, him. A master of our day, I'd say. So these ones are pretty much by him. And he did them in 5 minutes! (FIVE!)
