Pierre Auguste Renoir (spelling correction)

The Dance at Bougival
Here is a great website that has HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGES if you'd like to download these and save in your April folder to work from   

Scroll down and click on any image. There is a VIEW FULL SIZE option then right click and save to your folder. Some have a DOWNLOAD high res image option. 

Also a great article on Renoir and this painting

A short clip on PREPARING your SURFACE
I will be doing a drawing demo at the beginning of Tuesdays class but If you'd like to do a quick rough draft or NOTAN before Tuesday to work out the values and simple shapes you can use the image below! Look for 3 main values and omit all details!

This would be a great exercise!! 
Notan is a Japanese term which literally means "light dark harmony". Artists use "notan studies" to explore different arrangements of light and dark elements in a painting, without having the distraction of other elements like color, texture and finer details.
