Light blue backgrounds seem to work well. This was the first pose of the session. A mixture of fan brush, old flat end brush, chalk and oil pastel. Around 15 minutes.
this seemed to flow well. You have a sense of the weight of the form. A mixture of brushes.
I’ve overworked work this below.
This pose was great fun, everything seemed easy. Finished in 5 minutes. On a small (A2 is small for me) piece of sugar paper.
Four more 2/3 minute poses. There’s two on the last sheet. Mostly made with a Japanese calligraphy brush and diluted acrylic.
Here’s the reworked seated lady. It’s a bad photo but you get the idea.I wanted to make the model look monumental. It seems wrong in a way, touching a piece of work which is all about being in the moment of observing the model. It’s not on to take photos.
This was the last life drawing session until September, so thanks for looking. Back to graphics I suppose…
