Drawing Class

Second Drawing in classFinal drawing of ModelDrawing Class

Every artist should take a drawing class to hone their skills. Drawing. Drawing. Drawing. Every art teacher tell you that you have to draw before you can paint or watercolor. You have to get the drawing right.

This weekend I took a wonderful class on portraiture with Dan Riley and Joe MacKenchie, both respected Seattle artists.

Two teachers and five dedicated artists! It was great fun, exhausting and the perfect way to spend a rainy weekend.

Michael Maczuga Day Three - Portrait Painting with a Master

Emily our beautiful model has very dramatic features and was a joy to paint. Michael stepped into my painting and showed me how do some exquisite brush work.

It was an amazing experience to be in a room where everyone is talented and wanting to learn more.

Here is my rendition of our model.  We worked all afternoon on this.
