David really makes every pose something special.
It’s a pleasure to try and live up to his standards.
This pose took a lot of marks before it started to coalesse. Painting a face that’s upside down takes a fair bit of checking. The perspective held problems. John the tutor’s advice came to the rescue.
To try and re-create on the paper the tension and strength of the pose made me work pastels into the acrylic. The forces became palpable.
