"AAU Figure Painting Homework 1 (Day 1)"

Today is Wednesday, and I don't have any class. I went to the studio anyway because I have homework to do. For the figure painting class we need to paint two large paintings from photos we take . This is the largest figure painting I have ever done. The size is 24" x 36". It felt very different from doing 5" x 7", which I do most of the time before. I used a projector projecting my photo on the wall so I could measure. The pose was rather standard, so I didn't have much of problem getting the proportion and anatomy correctly. Then I practiced my recently obtained modeling skills making the 3D form. I painted 7 hours today. I maybe at the half way point now. I will finish this homework over the weekend.

Magnific "standard", standard but not usual.
Great painting!

Very very nice Qiang.

I am intrigued by your color palette on these figure paintings. What colors are you using?

Thanks, Olga

Lovely work. It is quite nice just the way it is, half-finished. Great model, too.

My hat's off to you for switching so easily from little to large. I find that really disorienting unless I'm working from life.
