Drawing in Oils: Monochrome

In this month's Quixotic attempt to teach oil painting in four quick lessons, the second Thursday class tackled rendering our beautiful model in a single color, burnt umber. The last drawing for the day was burnt umber plus white on a toned ground of gessoed kraft paper. This is really a big challenge but the students got through it with fairly good results, especially of course the talented teaching assistant Tuko Fujisaki.
