This is the project I'm working on in Friday's painting class. I've never actually used this technique of doing darks first. It's pretty interesting and it looks kind of funny right now, but judging from the fact that my jug satisfies me, I think this will look pretty cool in the end.
In Figure Drawing, I'm drawing professional surfer Bethany Hamilton, who had her left arm bitten off by a shark when she was thirteen years old. It's fun, but I'm also nervous about getting it right. I haven't tried to draw real people much, just things off the top of my head.
On another note, I finished crocheting this little owl last week. I got the pattern from http://engsidrun.spire.ee/blogs/blog1.php/free-pattern-crocheted-owls, via Pinterest.
