Life Painting 2: 031014. Odysseus

Classical male nude seated

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.
