Still life, tonal
Today was our first lesson with Lorraine Lewitzka, well known local artist and prize winner in our local Rotary Art show.
I have been taught by Lorraine before and know how good she is, and I need the going back to basics that she began with today. I am lucky if I get a class a year so to have 5 days is wonderful.
A still life done first in graphite pencil and then we painted it with the use of washes.
This is the first tonal sketch.
Only one other lass there that I knew from other painting classes and a couple I new of I had sold a pony to one many years before!
Much cooler again today which is great although it will heat up by the end of the week.
