Of course one of the other exciting teaching events going on is Studying Under the Masters online class. My week is coming up on March the 3rd. I am really enjoying the other teachers' weeks in the class. The amount of work everyone has put into their weeks is so impressive and breathtaking. This is definitely a class to savor over the next two years......and yes it is available for two years.
Here is some of the artwork I am doing now. I am planning on two new classes coming up. One is on angels and the other is on the Pre-Raphaelite Artists. They are still in the planning stages but here is some of the work I have been working on in that theme. Being a participant in the Studying Under the Masters reignites my passion for Art History so I have been reading several books on the Pre-Raphaelite Artists, one of my favorite art movements.
I am just now starting to paint hair on women. Most of my paintings before the women were bald, but for some reason I am becoming curious about painting hair, but did I have to do one with red hair!! That was intimidating for sure. This wasn't my first attempt. As you will see below the first attempt is on the right.
So, the Angel class is still getting sorted out in my mind. Here is one image I painted on plaster covered wood panel. I am now trying to incorporate hands more in my work which is really challenging and I have a long way to go, but I kept getting the nudge that I should start studying hands. They are so expressive and can be just as powerful as the portrait. It may show that I am still an amateur but the only way to get good at something is to do it....over and over. My faces didn't look the way they did 5 years ago. The only way I got better was with practice.
