So for this semester I think I'm going to just post progress shots of my major projects and perhaps what is happening through the long process? I don't know the best practice. But, I'll post the final piece on its own.
|The beginnings of my copy! AHH OIL!|
In my painting class our first assignment is to copy a masterwork. I thought about all sorts of my favorite pieces (any Van Gogh, Madame X, something by Egon Schiele).
|Deer's Skull with Pedernal|
Instead I chose the lovely Georgia O'Keeffe. She has such a wonderful way of capturing the arid beauty of the South West. Since I always feel a bit nostalgic about South West weather when it's this hot, she seemed perfect!
|Composition with Three Male Figures AKA Self Portrait Egon Schiele|
