|This painting was done in acrylic on canvas by Christina Wald|
I just started a going to an 8 week "Painting the Figure" class at the Art Academy. I have been meaning to go to one of the programs at Manifest, but was finally motivated to go to this because it is taught by my professor from University of Cincinnati Gil Born. He taught there for 40 or so years and recently retired. He was known for his amazing gouache painting demos of product and interiors.
In his retirement, he has taken up oil painting both landscapes and the figure.It is always good to see him again and of course paint...
Anyway, the first class was a lot of fun. One of my fellow alums (and occasionally lunch attendee) is taking the class with me. It is not so much a drawing class, the model holds one pose the whole session (this was a little under 2 hours). I did start with a loose watercolor sketch in my book.
Anyone else doing some life drawing/painting these days?
