Just thought I'd add another hat (helmet) pose, this one by Velazquez.
Thank you all for your feedback sheets. I was wondering if you could assist me a little more in this respect and put some more information on an e mail or through my contact form, if you have anything to add. If I run any daytime or weekend courses I will put the info on my social media and on this blog
We go through things at quite a pace and there will be steps to do with colour mixing, contrasts, or general paint theory that confused you. Also there may be particular task or exercises that you found useful or not so much. I'm always changing my exercises to find the most effective way of putting a point across.
Here is the link to "Our painted lives" that I was talking about in class. I've seen a few and I think he is a good one to follow.
Others that I know are excellent are "Proko"
and James Gurney
They come at the subject from an illustrator's point of view, but they are some of the best.
I'm looking forward to seeing many of you next term either on the Thursday or Friday courses. There are still places on the Friday figure/portraiture painting course but the Thursday course is full (although you can add your name to the reserve list).
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and New Year!
