Lea Wight is not only one of Studio Incamminati's very finest instructors, she's a genuinely nice person. I do not know what is better, her drawing sense or her color. Both are impeccable. Her compositions are infused with luminous optimism and her figures are warm with humanity.
Lea is great at pulling the viewer into the picture plane. The placement of the foot in the foreground here is a perfect entry point, like a great opening line to a song.
A fish on a dish has never been more exciting.
The open door is a very intriguing exit point. I love the warm light peeking through.
Powerful "duo-tone". This is Incamminati's technique in which there is a single shadow color and a single color for the light. The figure is fully modeled creating tonal differences by varying the pressure of the brush against the gray ground. This one's called "serpentine".
I find her drawings both gestural and deep.
This is one of the best graphite drawings I've ever seen. Look at how free and rapid the strokes are, but they come together to make this beautifully formed figure. The strokes toward the bottom right seem to drip off of the paper.
