May 20th would have been my mother-in-law's 72nd birthday. In her honor, my husband and I spent the day with his father and brother (+ wife & son) planting flowers in her honor. To commemorate the day, I painted her name and the date on the side of the planter and the result of all our combined work is below.

The final task for 'Narrative Illustration' was to re-do any project from the semester to improve. I chose to revisit the first assignment to illustrate a cliche and found better reference for the donkey. I also changed mediums and completed the following piece in water color and color pencil rather than acrylic and oil paints.

Last Friday I began my final in-class piece for head drawing. I began with a monochromatic underpainting which I am planning to glaze over next week to create the flesh tones. This is a process known as 'verdaccio,' which was often employed by the pre-ninteenth century 'Old Master' painters.
