Street Scene wFigures – Painting Friends Splash

September 9-10   – San Diego

Painting figures – This exercise was led by Wyna.  She showed us how placing heads in varied sizes at a point on the horizon and result in figures that appear to be at different distances.  Heads are small on the bodies; simple torso and legs.  Details are not needed; just something to distinguish men from women and front from back.

Street Scene w/figures – Wyna led this exercise too.  Most of the group worked on the same scene in order to follow Wyna’s demo.

After seeing Wyna demo, we looked back at photos from the beach and saw how most of the heads actually look like they are on the same level of the horizon.  Interesting.
