Well...here's my first ever attempt at an alla prima portrait. The model is one of my instructor's neighbors. He did a very nice job sitting for our class. I struggled with this...but, with David's help. this sort of looks like a human!! I am not a fan of the skin colors...but am learning so much!! Hopefully I'll be ready for my Putney, VT workshop with Michelle Dunaway in October!!
Oh...I started taking a figure drawing & painting class with Tommy Van Auken last week. I learned a lot the first week...and have decided I want to do more figure drawing!! But, right now I have to get ready for tonight's painting class after a week's vacation!!

Yep...more fruit!! This pastel painting was done on a piece of U-Art paper...and an alcohol wash under painting!! I don't care for the smell of rubbing alcohol...but I do like the effect of the undepainting showing through. Still trying new things...but am definitely loving pastels!!
