Model and his reflection. 10 mins.
Torso. 50 mins. Gold acrylic.
Large head. 10 mins.
The last pose of the night. The model has such a heroic demeanour he reminds me of the wandering Greek, Odysseus. The fact that I’m finishing Homer’s book might have something to do with it. His presence has an effect on the marks made and colours chosen. 30 minutes.
The session was fully booked. This presented problems organising space which turned into this interesting visual compositions. The drawing at the bottom of the page is a fellow artists work. I was standing, she was sitting down on a donkey (a low bench like seat). Big mistakes in the early part of the work were quickly amended. I’m proud of this one. 30 minutes.
Three quick poses on sugar paper.
10 minutes each.
The first two poses. Someone had left a few palettes of still usable acrylic paint which I used up. 10 minutes each.
The first tentative painting of the new sessions. All this session was created on the floor instead of the easel which explains the perspective.
A 10 minute pose painted twice.
The last pose of the session. I’m trying to work ways to present the other elements in the painting apart from the nude. Should the background be blurred or just more abstract? Should the colours become more muted the further back the pictoral space becomes?
This pose was worked up later at home. The artist and Mr Skellington lends the work a comic feel. You can almost touch her foot. I’m quite happy that I don’t know what the image is about.
A close up of the torso. In the session I hadn’t spent enough attention to the head, which was a shame, I ran out of time.
This work is one of the covers on the concertina book, currently being exhibited.
This piece of paper has really changed a lot over the months.
It consists of Acrylic, varnish, chalk, glitter gel, sandpaper and lint from a dryer.
