Life drawing 4 technique & colour

A small square canvas. It’s frustrating painting at such a scale. Like threading a needle.There are some nice passages. The pink legs are due to the heater at the bottom middle of the work. The legs of a fellow artist are top centre, giving the whole work some much needed perspective. The model was very pleased with this work. Acrylic on canvas. 1 hour.

Left: The first drawing the night; running out of space on the paper for the head it was drawn on another part of the paper and connected in photoshop.Pencil.  20 mins. Right: An exercise in brevity. We were only allowed a few marks per minute. Acrylic. 15 mins.

Left: Again only  few marks were allowed. People really seemed to like this one. 10 mins. Right: This is going into the realm of illustration, but still with some structure. 10 mins.

The bright, light colours reflect the model who seemed to be smiling throughout the poses. The shift of weight is interesting.smiling-lady-seated-with-red-background
