For me ultimately the goal of learning to draw figures the way we have practiced it in the Dynamic Figure Drawing class is to paint them. This is a quick attempt to add colour to one of the images we practiced this week. This figure is about 6″ high and that is pretty small to get in and add detail but the basic procedure is quite exciting. Making the figures larger will make the painting process more practical. I look forward to continuing with this approach. Another interesting aspect of doing these paintings is having the freedom (and pressure) of creating an interesting and relevant background.
