Lips Shapes_a lesson

"Lips Shapes"____a study for H.

Here is the last lesson from my teaching at the Western Art Academy...(I really miss you kids!)...H. was having problems with the lips on our model, so I did this little sketch in his sketchbook...The lesson is similar to the one on eyes: Lips are placed on the curve of our face, so they are subject to the rules of lighting on ANY plane that has a curve (remember the Michael Jackson nose lesson?) This image is so big and close up that it is almost abstract, but the dark horizontal shape is the opening of the can you see the PLANES of the lips?
