It has been a long while since I have taken a drawing class. PPASP (Portland Plein Air/Studio Painters) has been afforded the rare opportunity to study directly with Kitty Wallis..so I could hardly pass that up.
The classes are based on the concepts put forth in Nicolaides book: extensive gesture studies, blind contour drawing, modeling of the form with gesture-mass studies. As I worked in class... the more presence I started to see in what I put on the paper. I'm looking forward to all the exercises in the book.
