The lady had tattoos, multiple piercings and attitude.
A good strong personality to capture on paper.
The model’s look made me go for a strong approach to colour and media, sticking on pieces of paper and using masking tape for texture. The odd rip didn’t seem to matter.
The head in detail. It was mostly pencils this week as I wanted to travel light.
The full artwork as it is now, this work will change soon, the background will be all grey (I think). I’m working with oils on the paper, with other media such as oil pastel and wax crayon. A pose of 1 hour 30 minutes.
4 works of around 15 minutes each. Made with a noisy charcoal pencil.
This was too light to photograph well. The Mr Skellington was drawn before the class started. I’m trying to concentrate on the ribcage. Ribs are hard to count for some reason.
