Life Drawing 1. Japanese lady ‘Y’.

The first session was joyful. Great poses, good teaching and a positive atmosphere.

Acrylics and compressed charcoal on prepared paper; pencils added later. 30 minutes.

The model had featured on the exhibition poster for my last big solo show at the Mary Ward Centre, it was great to paint her again.

A close up of the head showing the texture of the paper.

yuka-carravaggioesque
Another 30 minute pose with some added pencil at home. I like the play of the turquoise against the dusky pink and dull yellow. I’ve signed these two, which only happens when I really like my work.

y-from-the-back-twice
Two studies from the first part of the class. Both around 15 minutes.

y-standing-dynamically
There was some fun talk about how ‘wrong’ this image was. Both feet were on the ground. At the time I was thinking of getting the some Vortiscist feeling into the work, making it strong, unsentimental and dynamic. 15 minutes.

y-seated-on-bust-with-back-to-viewer
A quick painting. The model was balancing on a plastic torso. 15 minutes.

      Thank you so much. I felt I’d captured something about her. The paper was given to me by a printers I use. It’s large (100 x 70cm) and I have a lot of it.
