This self portrait is homework for the figure painting class I'm taking at MassArt on Thursday night for the next 8 weeks. I am going out of my comfort zone on this one, as I'm usually an early to bed girl, and Boston is about 1 1/2 away, with the class ending at 10PM!! However, I wanted to study with Katherine Kehoe, whom I discovered through a fellow blogger Jean Townsend. I set it up with a strong light so that I could see the value/plane changes better. Still so hard, but as they say, we always have an available model!
