Tissue in Lightbox I

6 x 8, oil on panel

As much as I appreciate my bank of north light windows, the constant white diffused light can get boring after a while. So with some tips from my RISD friend Scott I set up a light box for myself - basically a cardboard box with an incandescent light shining through a hole onto the still life below. You can see the results of my first attempt with the light box here. I'm looking forward to experimenting more with this new setup.

In line with my 2007 resolution to continue my formal art education, I signed up for a figure drawing workshop with Juliette Aristides, who has just published two books about classical drawing and painting. Five full days of drawing! The workshop is the last week of March, and when it's done I'll post my drawings here.
