I have a forthcoming exhibition at the Mary Ward centre 21st September to Saturday 17th October. The title of the show is Information/Expression.
The final artwork in this series of life paintings. What a fantastic 12 week course it has been. This post was around 1 hour. The perspective is quite strong as the material was really near me. The orange chair might be a little small, but that’s how it seemed to me at the time.
I wanted to capture the changing light and heightened the colours, making the eye fill in the gaps between the tones and shades.
A close up of the head, showing her nose-ring.
The model was suffering form the heat so we had a 25 minute reclining pose, which reminded me of the figures made from dust in Pompeii.
The first two poses.20 minutes & 15 minutes.
