back, back, back to school again. Whoa, whoa, I gotta go... back to school again!

I am back from Italy and back in school again. Check out my Italy blog if you would like at SolainItalia. I haven't quite finished the last two weeks of it though. Soon, very soon.

So here is my first homework for Situation and Environment class. I am taking it online. This is my first online painting class and I really like it so far. For this assignment we were supposed to use a limited palette of four colors and spend about three hours painting from a photo my instructor provided. He wanted us to focus on a two value painting and not to worry about too much detail which is why the time was limited. Not to mention, it is supposed to simulate a painting that we would have done in class.

I like the head but I feel like my colors could be better and the proportions and hands aren't good. I have to work on that. I didn't spent much time on the hands. Overall I like it, especially since it is my first painting of a figure since last semester. All those landscapes got me rusty......but not too rusty :)
