Art class this fall

I took another drawing class at the NJ Arts Guild this past fall (the final class was last Thursday), and I got to stretch my creative muscles a bit. It's really nice to have a dedicated time to do nothing but draw, and to get encouragement and critiques from an actual artist, who doesn't give harsh criticism, but makes you fix things that aren't working, and offers some really good suggestions when you get stuck.

So I drew this skeleton a few times in charcoal:

And I broke out my pastels and tried some color work - which added many unexpected dimensions of complexity.

And then, I started to work on the drawing in my sketchbook from February, which will be the subject of tomorrow's blog post.
