We are off to a great start in this first week of painting in the nude ! first off id like to extend my gratitude to our lovely Model NNeka Uwudia ! she is an amazing artist herself and was gracious enough to sit with us for an entire 4 hours !! thank you NNeka ! also thanks to everyone who came out to learn about this oil Painting course ! Yesterday we started off with a short introduction to the course and what would be in store for the artists . There was a detailed sketching application where we graphed and plotted correlating points that helped us find our proportions correctly on the canvas ! , after that we used our rulers and extended arms for more detailed measuring. This lead us finally to facial recognition and details . after a quick face graph we moved on to some shading and detail work !!!
Everyone did an amazing job and im having a very hard time figuring out which one i like the best !! this is going to be a hard decision selecting which painting will be in the art show !!! good luck to all the artist though . and remember the finer points of the night session , Memory and observation !!! this is what we are actually sharpening with this art skill. Remember how this painting process mirrors the life process, Use it everyday and your skills will become magnanimous . thanks you
