Home Work: Figure Studies

Last Wednesday in painting class, we were required to do a live figure painting. Since it is a work for two weeks and we will continue to paint it the coming Wed. so I am not going to post the incomplete one. As an assignment for home work, we are all required to do a figure study from our morgue. Interesting in class, one of the students wanted to make sure she understood correctly, so she asked the instructor Carl if we were supposed to paint from our morgue a "naked" figure. Carl said yes but corrected her term by telling her that in art we always used the word "nude" instead of "naked".

As some of you may know, I have problem painting from a photo. it is hard for me to distinguish the nuances of color, especially the dark color. I went to the well-known international photographers' website and found some very good images. Unfortunately, I didn't like the one I made yesterday. The colors are not as clear as I wish to be. Therefore,  I made the second one this morning. Well, at least I think it is better than the first one. Hope you like it.
