Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Painting and Drawing
Program: Summer Course
Period: July 7,2014 - July 31,2014
Saturday Lucia and I walked around the Duomo and ran into a parade. Here I stand with some of the participants dressed in medieval clothing. They were really excited to be a part of the celebratory event.
My final week in Florence began with finishing the sculpture drawing from the week before. I struggled to understand the contrast in the composition, but with Andi’s helpful techniques I was able to squint and distinguish the dark from the light. After, with a kneaded eraser, I could pull out the highlights in the sketch.
Wednesday’s class was canceled so I came in for independent study and began my self portrait Andi had me do for homework. Mixing my skin tone was probably the most difficult part of the process but I was happy with the results.
Thursday I did some finishing touches on my painting from the week before. I had to change my style of painting by adding much more solvent to my paints because the wooden panel was much more absorbent than normal canvas paper.
