This week concentrated on the figure in drapery. The way material lies on the body can tell you what is underneath. Directions of creases delineate form.
A strong frenetic 15 minutes.
A play with pink and the most neutral light green. Colours were used to create balance and lead you through the image. The last pose of the night– the heat was sapping the energy.
A close up of the above. I’m pleased with my jacket in the background.
50 minutes of activity. I’m using Farrow and Ball tester pots. The red was overwhelming so it was knocked back with the light green. A full on scramble to get all the information down. The colour on the body is rather jolly. Rectangles move through the painting, from the screen in the mirror onwards.
10 minutes, in the first minute, a large brush and a lot of ink was put on paper. This was adjusted with grey oil pastel.
The image was finished of in photoshop, with slabs of colour. 15 minutes.
Around a minute.
Two other images 20 minutes and three minutes.
Mr Skellington. Made in the 30 minutes before the lesson starts.
