Art classes: week 3

I started this at our class last Wednesday, and then took a few more days to finish it at home.

The focus was tone, and we used this James Casebere photograph as our reference.

Heart cup, headphones, jug

Some more negative-space practice. Again, I used my pencil to assess the angles and proportions. I’m pretty happy with these.

Note: The headphones were lying down on the table just in front of me.

Art classes: week 1

I went to my first ever art class on Wednesday night. I was nervous, but then, everyone else in the room (14 other students) probably was too. We’re just about all beginners.

Learn to Paint podcast

This podcast only started a few months ago, but it’s my favourite so far for beginners. Unlike other podcasts, where the hosts tend to waffle, Kelly gets straight to the point and asks clear, insightful questions. And the guests give clear, insightful answers. It feels very practical, and I’m scribbling down lots of notes.
