Our Sunday life drawing workshop group was invited to participate in a mango show art exhibit at the Honolulu Hale to be held from July 20 to August 9, 2015. The exhibit will also be part of a one day festival celebrating the mango on August 8, 2015.
This is the painting I submitted for the show. It’s called A Girl and Her Mangoes. It’s 32″w x 42″h, oil on canvas.
I have yet to see the exhibit and I think I’ll stop to look at the show after work to see what the others have done. I think I may see some still lifes and many different artistic styles, but I’m hoping to see some really creative take on the mango.
I’ll take some photos or do a video tour to show what the exhibit looks like. I may post them at a later date.
Below is the cover of the prospectus.
Not that many showed up at the workshop today but it was a pretty good day for drawing the figure. This particular model that we had today has a mixture of white and dark hair that I sometimes have a little trouble depicting in my drawing. But I thought I got some good drawings off of her.
Below is one of the ten sumi ink warm-up sketches.
Below are 20 minute drawings done with black and white charcoal on toned paper.
