"Weekend Edition" Painting in Progress and Portrait Class

Pretty quick post ... because there's still lots to do today.

I continued to work on "Weekend Edition" after class today. The newspaper article taking shape is the photo, text about my 100 Faces in 100 Days Exhibit that was in the Washington Post's Weekend Section on Friday, May 6. I couldn't resist.

For my portrait class today, my students were doing all sorts of quick gesture studies in oil, Studio Incamminati style. Our model, Shalonda, treated them to beautiful and fun poses. What impressed me was how much better they became, quickly, at proportions as they moved away from contours into large shapes. This photo is toward the end of class once we'd moved to a little longer pose.

Tomorrow's my still life class. Should be fun!
