Value Study

Done on cardboard after drawing the figure first, putting the paint down in flat shapes. Three values only!

Monday, August 25, 2014


When I first learned to draw the figure, it was all about finding anatomical landmarks and measuring and comparing.
Last week I had the good fortune to attend a drawing workshop with Catherine Kehoe at MassArt. She taught a very different approach using straight line, a ruler and finding all the angles of the figure. 
This one is the drawing from the last day, so you can see all the lines used to find the form.

Sachuest Point

Working quickly as the afternoon light changes, I gaze around this beautiful spot and feel incredibly grateful to be seeing, painting, living.
