lesson 4

this is how my morning began.. on my way to my art class. the sun is still shining over here while i see snow has already arrived in other parts.
these views make me smile.

today was all about 'greys'. until now we have been looking at black and white - light and shadow. today we worked on the greys inbetween starting off with a scale of 10 going from the lightest to the darkest.

the teacher set up this thrilling set with the fabric draped over the easels and a light fixed underneath. these exercises are not the most exciting but they certainly get the message across.

i love the atmosphere in the room. there are trees at all the windows and the light filters in.


these were my finds on the way home :) .


wonderful and sculptural!!

what a difference between the still summer-ish light you walked in and the shades of grey you painted and which I also see, now that snow is outside (Shari's photo is amazing).
I LOVE the happy buckets! A superbe shot! Could you imagine the workers rattle down there ;)

one year in drawing class i made a tent city and had my students sit inside it :) w/ lights.

sometimes it's hard to make the fundamentals more fun.... but.

i love hearing about your progress

Enjoying hearing your drawing progress... I, for one, always struggle with achieving subtle tonal gradations. Happy drawing!
