Figure painting. The words every novice artist dreads. The words which invoke harrowing images of distorted limbs, muddy values, and nice clothes laid to waste by permanent and decidedly poorly mixed paint. The words which humbly remind me that everything does NOT come easily to me artistically. That I have a tremendously long way to go.
Despite my literary rambling, I have to admit that I genuinely had fun. I had fun, even if the nicest thing anyone said to me all day is that they like my "aggressive painting style." I wish I was able to produce something a little more sophisticated in a three hour time span... but hey. I'll take what I can get.
