Life drawing 13.05.16. ‘D’ in oils.

I’m trying to make sure you have the feel of a real person in a real room.
The stylisation happens in accidentally.

D seated

With the range of hues, positioning of the figure and range of brushstrokes, this has normal, academic feel. There is a lot of colours balancing for such a simple composition.

‘D’ is painted on a 1960’s oil board (canvas glued to a nice quality cardboard). The painting was blocked out with masking tape and a sponge loaded with diluted paint. Then the process of adding more colour, a bit of smudging, a little wax pencil and some good advice from John Close, the tutor (thanks for the yellow).
1 hour.
