Day 932 – Al Beyer

I drew this during art history lecture last Wednesday. Not meant to look like him exactly just the essence and to take notes on the lecture about how to compose a painting and be sure you get all the parts in perspective. When people are added the heads have to line up on your sight line or they will appear to float. Check out John Salimen,  another great art teacher.  He’s a master at composing from photos  with many national and international art awards. His new coffee table book is just gorgeous. 

His DVD  on urban landscapes explains how to compose a picture from several photos.   

Painted with my tiny whiskey painter palette loaded with Windsor newton travel Paullette colors. Refilled with Daniel Smith using the same colors plus DS quin coral. 

A bientot Happy Mondayoff to class I go.
