The model charged the atmosphere this week with a technique of saying an excerpt from a scene in a play before freezing into a pose. This gave the pose a context, a strong starting point from which to cover the blank page.
This image meshes the pre class drawing of the new skellington (who’s got a rather more scary disposition due to his spring loaded jaw) with Clifford (his words before the pose went along the lines of ‘I cannot explain it any more simply than that’), plus two of my fellow life drawing class. The media is a mix of acrylics and some new expensive pencils. 15 and 30 minutes.
The first pose of the night. The colours are to resonate with the expression of the model. The words before the pose were ‘Not like that!’ 20 minutes.
3 15 minute poses. I’m happy with the Autumnal palette. It seemed to suit. The close up of the hands and bottom is from the right image above it.
Finally, a napkin drawing of some friends having a morning coffee.
