Frenchie Friday!

So me and a bunch of OCAD kids decided to get together and paint each other every Friday!
I decided to nick name it Frenchie Friday after the cute dog and the phrase "paint me like one of your French girl" 


Here are some alla prima I painted from past sessions. Each sitting is 25 min. 
It was a lot more difficult to model than I thought... I cannot keep a straight face :D

I shall do a compilation of everyone's work for future entries. I think that will be very fun! 

First figure painting of the year!

First life painting of the semester!
I decided to gouache it :D 

Name tagged as per usual first class! This is actually my second time taking a class with Sara Sniderhan. It is her first year at OCAD U, definitely recommend! Her critiques are very precise and concrete. She also covers different painting techniques, more specifically Jeremy Lipking's, who she studied with. Her teaching style is similar to Kevin Bae (another awesome painting teacher), but their critiques styles are very different. 

Maybe I should write a blog about different painting profs at OCAD U. Since illustrative and observational painting courses are one of my favourite experiences at OCAD U.
