Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Nationality: Sri Lankan
Course: Painting and Drawing
Program: Master Coures
Period: Sep. 4, 2017 – Apr. 28, 2018
Since her childhood it is one for her dreams to be pursuing her masters in art and design. She applied to the international art and design competition 2017 and obtained second place in category of professional in art painting and drawing section.
On Monday we practice our new lesson life drawing. Life drawing is practice of drawing from a live model in different poses. Drawing human figure has sadly been dismissed for the last 30 years or so ‘’old hat’’, mainly by those who find it difficult to do and rely on words rather than image to convey ideas. For any visual artist drawing from and understanding the figure, in my view is fundamental as a practice, to train the eye to see accurately and observe emotion and gesture. On the other hand we can gain the practice are personal visual language, composition and special awareness.
When practicing human figure,
• light & value
are most important elements.
Earlier in our lessons we practice photo reference for our paintings. But when you practice real you can realized your eyes will grab things that photographs just can’t capture.
As I traced my sketch in to the wall in my Thursday lesson I start to color it. My first challenge to select what is the best color tones for this design. My Lecture she gave me freedom to select it by my own.
As she told us to select tempera or acrylic to this wall paining of course Devid selected Acrylic which is his favorite medium for this as well.
