Painting Intensive Day 1

First we had to draw a baboon, a thunderstorm and a large bird flapping its wings in 9B water soluble graphite.

Next, the instruction was to do a painting over a 5-hour period that was different from anything you've ever done. I did this one. I am usually a fast gestural figure drawer. this is a slow detailed abstract. I work small this painting is 5 feet high. I use a lot of colors and this one is limited to reds, black graphite, and gold powder we found at the Art Supply Store for $1.99 a bag.
