Painting class - bowl and drapery.
The drawing, as always, is the first thing to attack. Look at the group globally , that is to say, as a whole and work out the relationships, spaces - both negative and positive, and the context in which the group is placed, then, using charcoal, plot in the basic drawing.
With the bit of time left on that first evening I quickly worked on the darkest area to establish the values as shown on the poster, remembering to include the adjacent blue of the backdrop and the brown of the bowl, plus the small section of cast shadow on the wooden board upon which the model is placed.
