Graphite on Paper
Here is the reference photo that I used. As you can see, I was taking a picture of one of his great-grandkids and he was in the background. If you use reference photos, I think it is always good to look in the background and look for subject material.
I started my class in Peoria last night. I am really glad that I signed up! It was so fun to paint as a group and the teacher is really good too. I think it has helped me to break out of my dry period. We started out by painting black and white objects in light by only using white and a dark paint. Next week we will try to find values using colored objects.
