Sitting lady master 5

 

Here are the earlier versions. Strange what happens after the model has gone.
The original took 30minutes. In all I suppose it took 3 hours.

Last week I only had 45 minutes in the class. After the session I worked on the image for another 2 hours.

Life Painting 6 & 7: 31.10.14. & 07.11.14 The dynamic & strong lady. Plus a sharpie sketch.

Strong lady on bed

Last Friday was rather busy for me. There was only one hour left of the session.
So sleeves were rolled up and this appeared. The smear on the top is the palette being scraped across the top.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The friday before.

Lady on bed

A concentration on the drawing, with colour put on in the last 20 minutes. 50 minutes in all. It’s often hard to get some strength and dynamism in the resting figure, hence I’ve heightened the speed and colour of the mark making.

Lady profile

Here’s a head of a larger work. I’m reworking the whole pose. There post about this later. 30 minutes.

Three ladies

3 poses. 10 minutes each.

dynamic lady first pose

 

The first pose of the night. Nice light colours. A sweeping curl of a composition. The hand is my own. 10 minutes each for the pose and the hand.

The family now has a large amount of coloured sharpies. I think the smell of them makes me nauseous. Anyway this was made in a quiet second on Saturday.

Dina no shine

This is a portrait of a friend, sitting at my kitchen table with a glass of white wine lit by candlelight.

What I’m trying to do with this painting is:

1. Make you feel like you are really there. The levels of foreground (glass) mid (candle) and background. Is this glass of wine yours?

2. Paint the different texture of glass (with gloss varnish), brass, candle (with real wax in the paint) tablecloth and lady.

3. Create a relaxing image that still has an edge.

This painting has been tough to photograph. The different varnishes and the way it was painted to look good in low light made it problematic to capture.

A companion piece to GG.
