Life Drawing 7. Bright!


Heaters are great to paint. Heater on a hot colour. The bright base layer helped the skintone, gold paint helped too. Acrylics and pencils. 1 hour for the main painting, the pencils took around 30 minutes while eating a late snack around midnight.

A detail of the face. The poor model had fainted earlier in the session, so the reclining pose was a must.

Four poses on blue. Each pose was made in a differnet way.
From left: Only painting upwards, Made with blended colour with pencils at the end, below using a pointelist technique and made using a line structure.

m four times in different styles

This ended up looking like a 1950’s style portrait. A nice range of textures.
