Chiaro Fall 09:Module 12: Figure Drawing (Cont'd)

We still practice to do block-in all day, today. I changed my seat to draw female model in the afternoon because I thought I was not good at drawing female human body. I needed more practice...

Chiaro Fall 09:Module 11: Figure Drawing

Today, we started to drew the real model. In fact, I was really excited about that I can have a chance to draw a real human body. Our Model is really professional and creative. Though we just did block-in practice today, he still made many difficult and interesting pose for us. After today's practice, I started to have some feeling about block-in. Remember some important trick and keep practicing will make me better....

Chiaro Fall 09:Module 10: Draw from Plaster Cast

The beauty of Venus's plaster cast proved that I was a block-in idiot, again! Trying hard to find the balance of measurement and intuition. Every time I thought I did it well, Sadie would come and tell me how many mistakes I made. I felt that I was a dog try to trace its tail. While I corrected one place and then it would make something else wrong. I really felt disappointed about my performance.

But I still learn something today. I found that there is something wrong with my way of measuring. And I have to have a foundation  point which is solid and won't be moved. In this way, my block-in will be better.

Chiaro Fall 09:Assignment 4-4

I finally finished this painting. Although after few weeks, while I took look at it again, I still can find some flaws in this painting. But I still feel proud of it. After complete rest of the dark place, I found that I really pop out the face of this young girl. It is really a cool thing. I believe that this painting is an important mile stone of my art life. Thanks for Sadie's encouragement to make me keep working hard on this painting....
