Face #14 - paynes gray
14 of 29 underpaintings.
Many of you are curious about what I'm planning to do with all of these underpaintings, so I figured I'd take this opportunity to explain what I'm up to...
After I graduated from art school, I went back to school and completed coursework to teach art. During that time, I taught a lesson about surrealism to an advanced drawing and painting class. It was based on the surrealist game, "the exquisite corpse", and it was my very favorite lesson.
Previously, I mentioned that I am working on a new project that requires lots & lots of faces... Well, the project I am working on is an updated version of my old favorite assignment.
When I taught "the exquisite corpse" to the high school students, it was a collaborative project. I am currently working on a version that I can do on my own, but with the same element of surprise and unexpected combinations.
As I've been revisiting the surrealist lesson, I've been feeling nostalgic about teaching... Which is why I've also started working on creating some online classes! Hooray! I have 2 minis and 1 extensive class in the works. (I'm hoping to launch them in the new year, so stay tuned...)
