This week was all about resolving both my figure and cast painting.  I focused mostly on my edge work: edges of forms, edges of shapes within forms, and also edges of the big light shape and shadow shape.

Specifically with my cast painting, Magda, told me to think about the light hitting the cast as if it were a liquid.  How does that light/liquid flow down the cast in nature and then compared in my painting.  I saw that my lights were looking a bit jumpy, so I worked on the edges of the light forms to show how smoothly and subtly the light flows across the cast.

Friday, I finished both paintings and I’m so excited to start brand new projects on Monday.
