drawing a day ~ week 8 Originally uploaded by dressform.
oh it's monday again.... since i now actually have a job job on monday i can say that! tonight is our first critique in the drawing class. we'll see what happens. i have more a mix this time - a mix of "studio" art and "electronic" art students. i think this will actually help.... the first crit is usually the hardest because it's all about setting the tone and the students get a real sense of what you are looking for.... what's expected, what you notice [yes i notice the small things] i have to go get snacks. i always bribe with snacks! [heh heh]
the yellows in the drawings are slowly getting darker... i think there are only 2 left?? it's funny because i look and say - oh no only 2 yellows left - what do i want to do with yellow that i haven't done yet.... when really yellow has been kind of hard... hard to see... hard to think about what to do since the impact is so much more subtle. why does the mind work like that? it's the want what you don't have syndrome....
busy week, but i'm feeling a bit more on track.... thank goodness! i'm actually going to do SPT tomorrow.... and there's the big de young museum re-opening [they've been closed for renovation] thurs. night... there are several events, but this one is the "artist" one [what does that mean?!?!]. i can't figure out what to wear! - but i'm looking forward to seeing the new building!
