Today we had a model (Carla) to paint. Charles had his usual painterly, vivid and creative result. We students tried our hand at capturing her this afternoon. Not quite the same. Apparently we all had trouble seeing her as she actually was and finding the lights and darks. I was pretty happy with my attempts! But - after holding a photo of her next to my painting, it became clearer what I was doing wrong. So - I learned something new today, and hopefully I will use that knowledge tomorrow. Oh wait, have I mentioned I'm not the best student?
Hehe. No, seriously, I will try to do better!
