I’ve decided to start a new tradition on my blog and make a weekly blog post on Saturday, discussing new thoughts and ideas I have about my art as well as my progress at my art school and what I’m working on.
So from now on every Weekend will feature such weekly post. Alright, so here we go. What have I been doing all this time?
I’ve been working on a lot of paintings since the beginning of the year. Last year was nothing but drawing for me, this year started with monochromatic painting (just a black and white), then I added red to my palette and finally, in the last 2 weeks: Yellow. Oh, the excitement!
So I realize that for you, the reader, there is no proof that I am actually doing these things since I have not been posting pictures. So to prove that I am not making this up, I shall post some highlights.
Here are a couple of drawings from last year. One in Graphite and one in Pastel pencils:
One of my favorite poses this year has been a new model at my atelier named Jodie. I painted her for 3 days with black and white oil paints; it was a very delightful and inspiring experience. I had a lot of fun describing the form of her body with paint. Here is a picture I took (with my low quality camera, unfortunately):
The story will will continue next week, in my weekly Ifat’s Art post #2.
