Good grief, it feels like forever since I have written on this thing. It's kind of hectic running Emerald Arts and going to Tafe and having a market stall, but I'm managing it all at the moment. Last Monday was my first day off in about a fortnight. Slept in till midday, bought a silly magazine (Famous) to read about the Oscars (as if Jen or Angelina gave a crap about each other, I'm sure all that was just a media beat up), had an afternoon nap then caught up on my RSS feeds.
Right now, I'm listening to the Watchmen Soundtrack... jeff Buckley so beats Leonard Cohen on Hallelujah.... and waiting for Tenski to get home so we can go late night shopping (if he's not too tired) cos I need to get wood to build my very first canvas tomorrow OHMYGODYAY!@
We focused on drawing hands in today's class. This was my first sketch. It's funny, I've always avoided them because I just found them far too tricky, but having had the construction explained to me properly I loved it. Still quite hard to do, but not impossible. Going to pester my friends to be hand models every chance I get. Fair warning ;)
This afternoon we went to Centennial Park for Extended Gestural Drawing with our teacher Pete. I had a ball sketching this copse of trees in charcoal then fine pens... will spray them with fixative then scan them tomorrow for ya'll, as soon as I figure out what to put over the scanner glass to protect it.
