I just completed an intermediate still life painting class at the Academy of Art University. I've posted photos of the paintings in two albums.
The first album shows the paintings I created in class:
The second album shows the paintings done in my studio for homework:

I have a lot of drawings that were done between last March and now, but I never got around to photographing them. Maybe I'll have time to do that soon.

The final week was spent drawing the satin jacket that the model wore the week before. The jacket was fitted on a mannekin. Since I had finished the drawing of the live model the week before, I decided to suggest the mannekin, rather than pretend the model was still there while I was drawing the jacket. I spent four days on the first drawing and then did the smaller second sketch on the final day of class.
In November I started a 12-week program with Ted Seth Jacobs. The first six weeks we studied figure drawing and the second six weeks was portrait drawing, which just ended last week (Feb. 22). This drawing was my first figure drawing of the workshop. After twelve weeks of class, I now see this has a lot of problems, but I post it here as a record of my starting point for the class.
