Snowflakes


It turns out I haven't done a very good job of photographing all the amazing studies everyone has been working on this past month, but next week I'll try to collect some good images of people's work for the blog. For this entry, I have a lot of photos of what's been going on around the studio:


A surprise baby shower for Justine, who is expecting twins!










A big trend in snowflakes ...


Jacob Collins teaching in the cast hall


some shots of the sculptures in progress ...








Spencer Brainard working on his cast painting


Carla Crawford finishing up her cast painting




Some serious snowflake technique




The tuesday portrait class


taking the snowflakes to another level












learning to make plaster casts in sculpture class

To you summits always a grisaille before the coloured bet? (I am French and I speak badly the English language. Sorry)

Once they have reached a level of competence in figure drawing (with pencil) students begin to study the figure in grisaille. Once they master the grisaille painting, they learn to paint with a full palette in color. The students painting with color do not start with a grisaille underpainting.
