Painting and Drawing vol.4 (Art short course – priyanka)

Painting and Drawing blogDay 1 : Immersing My self further in the pen and technique and it’s various applications which have to be spontaneous and in a smooth flow I dwell deeper in several small and observant studies. I am experimenting and observing Italian maestro Peitro Annigoni ‘s iconic works.
Painting and Drawing blogDay 2 : Mixing a variety of techniques which include pencil drawings, pen and ink strokes, inks with brush.. I am trying to capture the depths and flatness of textures while I work on my own.
Painting and Drawing blogDay 3 : Independent work hours help work on my projects.
Painting and Drawing blogDay 4 : Today I work back again on the trompe le oil on wood board … it’s requires work in precision and layer over layer. I am learning Italian and visiting the beautiful countryside along with people from various cultures. I visit Cappello Medici and Museo martelli museums this week too.
Painting and Drawing blogAnother day to dabble and work on my project as I try to sync it while experimenting learning the fineness of the techniques.

Already looking forward to the 5th Week !
