straight up

Figure painting after 60 minutes and then 140 minutes. It's amazing to me that we got only 140 minutes of actual painting time out of 8 hour of class between people being late, breaks, and people being late on their breaks. This is coming together pretty quickly though - I spent the first 20 mins just looking and studying before I put anything on the canvas. Actually linen, oil primed, which I know I am supposed to love but is not an ideal surface for the way I paint (for now). I'm looking forward to the conclusion AND my last painting class next thursday, but more so the 4 week break that's just around the bend.

I received a thoroughly thorough critique on this painting Thursday and it has transformed into the final painting project, which I'd hoped for all along. I have a lot of work to do in the next 2 weeks, but I'm excited for it.
