"The vulgar wil see nothing but chaos, disorder , and incorrectness." By James Ensor
My painting has been put aside for a short time, while I’m taking an advance college anatomy drawing class. I have about five weeks left (Thank you Jesus). The homework keeps me very busy.
My style of drawing and painting is very tight and detailed (I want to say Classical) rendering which turns out to be beautiful work.
I forgotten how a lot of art college professors love ABSTRACT works.
I’m very much out of my comfort zone, which can be good (or bad). While my art professor is making other students work smaller, tighter, more detailed, she is having me work LARGER, LOOSER, GEOMETRIC and less detailed. I really have to control myself from running out of the room.
There are good days and bad days for me in this class. I’m open to learning new things, but being older and doing things a certain way for a long time makes it hard to make changes. It takes practice and I’m doing the work. I'm learning a lot and really like the teacher and students in the class.
I wonder how this class is going affect my future drawings and paintings. I have gotten some new ideas of how I want to render some of my future art works, so it going to be a good thing.

A quick 40 minute pose drawing
The model for Thursday night open studio sessions (not part of my college class) did not show up this past week, so another artist posed for us. It's a 3 hour session and local artists meet every week meet at this studio to draw/paint models. It gives me a chance to practice what I have learned in class and combine drawing the way I like. I'm also meeting new artists and it is fun looking at each others artistic style of the same model when we finish.
