Day 24: Figure Painting Final Day

Jeanne Carbonetti's workshop was divided into three days each focusing on a different aspect of the process.  On Sunday, the final day's demonstration and exercises was based on Jeanne's book, the Yoga of Drawing. She demonstrated a technique that uses both gesture and contour drawing methods.  After she transferred her drawing onto watercolor paper she then finished the painting showing her method of working.  The students were then invited to make a drawing and turn it into a watercolor painting.  The two painting shown here include a composition based on a drawing of Jeanne's from her book which I titled Meditation and my practice copy of the painting she did today, Eve and the Apple.  A very instructive and inspiring workshop. Thank you, Jeanne Carbonetti.
