Life Drawing 3. The Lady in an expressionist manner

There was something dynamic and expressionistic in my marks this session.
It might be tiredness and the choice of colours.

Lady reclines in Expressionist manner
The last work of the night. 1 hour. Strong orange marks then cool green, blacks and greys, pinks covered in the last 20 minutes with coloured pencils. I’m getting nearer to my goal of portraying the sitters presence in the room at that specific time, with the sense that the work is being created from the model, hence the obvious marks of brush and pencil.

Lady on black paperOn a black sugar paper. 5 minutes. The brush marks in white and light blue were painted first. Then came the chalks.

Lady times two in expressionist manner
I set out to make the boldest marks in the strongest colours, with a little conté pastel to put in the detail.

The thought before this was to make the largest, simplest and most free painting in the next 5 minutes.
