I came into the studio and stayed last night until 11:00 to get my McNeal ready for review, only to set my alarm for the wrong time this morning! I'm so mad I'm kicking myself. Yuck.
It's been so nice to take a break from McNeal the last week or so. I love drawing the models. The woman who modeled for us on Monday was, I thought, exquisitely beautiful. I loved drawing her, she had such a wonderful figure. The process can be mentally exhausting, especially when we do 20-30 minute drawings, but I'm really enjoying them. I just wish I wasn't stupid enough to sleep in this morning to miss class! Argh!
I'm going to go back to McNeal at night now to shade my drawing. In the corner I picked (third floor by the bathrooms and stairs), there are four light fixtures. The lighting is so dramatic and wonderful! Darker, eerier images, whether paintings or photographs, hold a high allure for me, so I'm going to display the same idea in my drawing. To tell you all the truth, I just transferred my drawing to the Stonehenge! Oh, I feel awful. This semester has not gone well, but now I'm prepared to break my back with grace. What goes around comes around, and I'm starting to think, "I wish I had done this differently/sooner/better, etc..." We can't be lazy, we must be diligent!
I guess, see you all on Monday. Good luck with everything we have left! We're doing so well.
