Week 2 in Life-drawing
So, I posted one of my home-work assignments from the life-drawing classes already. Here's the last one I did on Friday night. I'm actually really proud of this one because after watching "Secret of Kells" (which is so beautiful, go and see it!!!) I had a pint with some friends I met in the cinema and went home to do the assignment. I thought that was pretty good of me, I could have easily stayed for 2 more pints - actually I'm a little bit intimidated by this life-drawing teacher. He teaches in NCAD and is kinda strict (let's just say I don't want to get on his bad side ;-))
The other two are from the model. It was pretty intense....only 3 poses in 3 hours. Phew....of course I'm not used to drawing with a paint brush - does it show?? LOL I thought painting the background in red was a strange thing to do, but the teacher said that classical artist did so to give a better comparison to dark and light, red because it's vibrant and portrays blood in the veins of the model. Thought that was pretty cool!
