I went to the Figure Drawing Class at the Honolulu Art Academy, yesterday (7/23/12)
Here are my drawings form the class.
Above is my favorite of the 4. This is a 20 minute drawing, using oil Pastels on a toned background.
There is a great play between the oil pastel and the tone underneath in this drawing. I had multiple of the participant in the class comment on her stomach and how nice it looks with the wash's colors leaking underneath the drawing. It makes a great effect.
This life drawing class is on Monday at 7PM. It is located at the The Honolulu Museum of Art School, formerly the Academy Art Center at Linekona. There is a 10 dollar class fee.
