Completion of my class demo, in need of a title. 20x30
Wow! What a great three days of painting and horses!! The weather wasn't exactly cooperative but we were able to adjust thanks to Ann Delzell and her neighbor Juliene and his beautiful appaloosa horses, not to mention his indoor arena keeping us out of the rain. Thursday morning we studied anatomy and drew from photos then in the afternoon we went to Juliene's. It was pouring rain outside but we were nice and dry in the arena. Our extremely handsome model was Captain Kirk! And he seemed to love all the attention the ladies bestowed on him. We were able to examine up close the skeletal structure and musclulature noting particular points to look for when painting.
|What a beautiful mover!!|
|I may have adlibed the Captain part of his name but he is quite a stunning boy|
and so patient with us! And thank you to Mindy his handler!!
The next two days everyone worked hard on their own paintings from photos assisted by their experience with the Captain.
Judging by the quality of work produced I'm convinced of the amazing power touch has on the memory! I sidtracked into the realm of composition a little also. There was such a good response to this that I'm planning a mini workshop in the near future on the subject.
