2nd Class...

Well, as I promised, here is the result from my second class. I am not happy with it - the finished image I had in my mind is definitely not what you see now. I am so used to painting landscapes, both from photos and en plein air, that I think I approached this the same way and it didn't work for me. I have been reading and watching videos that show a 'workshop' approach, and I hope to try it during my next class. In the meantime, Mark Hayden has assigned me 'homework' - self portrait studies. It will be difficult for me, but I am determined to figure this out! I'll keep you posted...
I think I should mention that this painting changed drastically from the first class. The model was great, but my view in class 2 was not the exact same so I needed to make the appropriate changes. On a positive note, I think the painting looks more like the model this week.
