Life drawing 6: on coloured ground.

Lady on pinky red full painting

In the middle of the night the thought came to put solid colours onto paper. Three sheets were prepared with acrylic applied with a printing roller. The next evenings work benefited from the bright ground. Gold paint works well against the fuschia. A good strong diagonal with a balancig ‘horizon’ strip along the top. The last pose of the night. 1hr.

red studio
As in the Matisse work ‘Red Studio’ the background does not receed. The effect is to state this is a painting decorative and beautifu, as well as what is seen infront of the artist.

Six short poses on grey ground. The class conentrated on hands and feet. A touch of the programme ‘Taboo’ in the ghostly colours and dramatic lighting.

The unused blue sheet of paper. Rather nice as it is.
