Continuing with my lessons in Painting Realistic Water Colors by Dawn McLeod Heim, I finished project #4 which is the rose and wine glass. It was suggested that you prepare 15 different colors (I did 14). This was quite a stretch for me. Also, she does not tell you where each color is to be placed, but you are supposed to be advanced and can refer to the color photograph. Basically I'm moved out of my comfort zone. However, I did finish this piece and have started on the next lesson.
Today I went to my figure drawing session.This was a 25 minute drawing done with pastel pencil. As I sit down to draw, I wonder how "with it" I'll be each day. I was comfortable in my space and found that I was holding the pencil in a more relaxed way and I was observing negative spaces. Certainly room from improvement, but I only have 9,950 more drawings until I can accurately capture the image!!
