Painting and Drawing Short Course (n.3)

Painting and Drawing blogDay 1
Today I started experimenting with the pen and black ink with Professor Alessandro guided me with technique along with the translator. Though I am familiar with this technique yet there is space for much more exploration and mixing this medium along with others.
Painting and Drawing blogDay 2
Continuing with pen and ink today I try my drawings with brown inks and explore further. I also look at Pietro Annigoni’s works and see the breadth of this medium. Today in the studio we had women from Kuwait, Mexico, Denmark and me from India. Though we all are working separately yet It’s a healthy cultural exchange because in the end we are all artists.
Painting and Drawing blogDay 3
Today I work back again on the trompe le oil way of working on the wood plank. I am understanding this new medium with the help of the translator.
Painting and Drawing blogDay 4
Another day to dabble and work on my project as I try to sync it while experimenting as I work along. Application along with syncing is new thus the movement of my project is slow but steady. I am enjoy the challenges and learning a lot in many ways. In the evening I go out to with friend to explore the city life. It’s a beautiful experience.
Painting and Drawing blogDay 5
Day to explore Lucca Art Fair 2022. I exchanged 2 trains and reach this historic town and excited to see the Art at the fair. I explore the duomo in Lucca and other landmark areas. Also get to see a local flag bearing competition at the town square. After that exchange 2 buses to reach the beach at Viareggio. It’s a beautiful town by the coast and The people of Italy are very friendly and helpful.
Already looking forward to the 4th Week !
