Life Drawing 2: 080515. Barry in colour.

This gold paper is tough. Conté pastels don’t attach to the surface but scrape through the paint, revealing the gold underneath. 45 minutes. The reflection makes the image.

A close up of of Barry, You can see the scratches.I’d forgotten the dark grey, so I was mixing the green and red.

Mr Skellington was painted while we were setting up. The quick poses included holding the pastel on the end of a  brush, in your hand like a claw and with the ‘wrong’ right hand.

This was a ten minute pose taking what ever was to hand. The colour choices were not thought of.

Barry in yellow, brown and green

This ten minute pose was made using the style of Pointillism. Then I added some lines at the end.

      Thank you. Sticking to one set of marks or colours would be no fun. I try and go with what the model makes me feel. And what is nearest. No time to mix a flesh tone.
