Meeting 13

This last Thursday was our 13th meeting of the Dirty Palette Club and we gathered after our late Thursday classes in the cast hall in the HLB (Historic Landmark Building) as they call the old school these days. the hard core members were in attendance and we spent the evening drawing and painting away. I am working on a big painting for my Figure Comp class that has to have two rooms in it and a figure. I made pretty good progress on it and figure another 2-3 passes should finish it. I laid into it quick with the palette knife to load in the big masses of paint I need to cover the canvas. I am really trying to go for the atmosphere in this painting and the cast hall has such great mood and lighting. We only have 3 more weeks in the semester and then we are done with classes but the DPC then will take it on the road over the summer and explore painting in and around the city.
Here is my setup in the cast hall and you can see early progress on the painting.
