paraffin figure finished

i think i won't touch anything else on it. i have the final exam next thursday.
our teacher is 82, and he fell a couple of weeks ago. i was so glad to see him back at school today; fortunately he told me he's ok now, so he'll be present for our final exam.

composition exercise Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte
in the first one there is the use of a colour and its analogues, then little zones of another analogue (orange). in the second one the use of completely different colours but keeping the small zones in the same colour, to see the constrast.

urban view - oil (unfinished)

i started it today at painting class, just a rough sketch in oil up to now. gotta wait till it dries to give different values then finally add the details.
it's after a pic i took from a cd a friend gave me a couple of years ago with some of her travels photos through Spain.
