Although I’m still struggling with this, I found this article from Seattle Artist League on blocking in helpful. Some good example images.
Last Wednesday, we painted some still lifes from coloured photocopies. The reason we painted from photocopies rather than real still-life setups was so that we didn’t feel pressured time-wise. (We could take the paintings home and finish them there, which I did.)
It’s taking me longer and longer to post these because the exercises I’m working on between classes are taking longer.
Last Wednesday, we finally got to work with paint. This is what I’d been waiting for.
