For the final evening of the class, I decided to leave well enough alone on my previous painting and to try something different. I wanted to try Seth Haverkamp’s technique for painting. As stated in my last entry, Seth started with an very minimal drawing and taught us to render the colors in the shapes and forms we see.
I moved from the rear of the room to closer to the door and the model’s front. There was some great foreshortening; I chose to work on her abdomen, legs and hips.
I liked how this came out in spite of the fact that I only had a few hours. It forced me to focus on the colors and shapes and not get so lost in the details.
