Deconstruction of Light

The art department at my school does this really awesome thing where, every Thursday, they hire a model to come to our drawing studio so that anyone can come and practice their skills. Last night I partook in one of these Open Model Sessions and for 2 hours painted in the corner. I discovered so many amazing things in those two hours about light, volume, line, and space. The main thing I focused on was the warmth and coolness of light and how it falls on the planes of the model's figure. The light from the lamp over the model's head was cool-- represented by the cool green highlights. The ambient light was warmer, hence the red shadows under the chin. Each brush mark is there for a specific reason. I let myself dart around the page-- giving no attention to the fact that this is a painting of a girl on a pillow, but rather simply responding to the planar light relationships. I'm looking forward to a whole semester of these sessions!
