ok, now that I have a little more time...

Pratt is amazing! Here are two paintings that were assigned in the first week, both 20''x30'', acrylic (the oranges and reds are a little more intense than the actual paintings); they had to be figure in space.
Since then we have had to do two 16x20 paintings of the same image shot in black and white (figure in space again), then make up or borrow the palettes, one being in the daytime, one at night, but we must use the same reference for both. This entails pushing the values and playing with color temperature, etc. (I will post those later)
He is also reassigning the first Academy assignment of just basic color and value.
In addition to that, we have 15 sketchbook pages due each week... this keeps us drawing non-stop! He wants figures in space, with value.
I will try and keep up with posting, but just as one thing is critiqued, we have something else due the next class!

I love both of these paintings, and I am so envious you get a whole semester with Pratt!!!! I would love to see some of the sketchbook pages you work on too. Keep working your tail off.
