Life Drawing 6: The Australian.

This session was about the horizontal contours around shapes. This was the last session for the life model before returning to Oz. Again the paper was prepared before using toxic spraypaint.

This was created in an hour of fun. Good advice from the tutor, John Close meant that the background was knocked back by the quick application of a sponge dipped in diluted grey blue acrylic. Acrylic, compacted charcoal and a small amount of pencil. I like the fight between the perspective and the flattening nature of the magenta background.

3 quick life poses and one quick nature morte. On loud red spraypaint.  Mark making across rather than the usual up and down. It lends the drawings a sculptural quality.

      Thank you. It is better to be bright than all that mock serious grey that signifies ‘modern art’. The colour is how I feel about the work, joyful and exciting; like swimming in a coral reef.
