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.
