Life drawing 22.09.17. The actress.

The first of the new sessions.

This was made by using a large angled flat-head brush loaded with tester pot grey.
In two minutes I had the size and composition. Then with different sized pastels the details were worked out. Instead of colour and tone thickness of line was used to denote form and light.

A detail of the above. I spent longer on the face than usual.actress sitting in two colours detail

This is nearly successful, it’s captured something of the models style.
It started with a series of diagonals, which worked quite well, though the torso is too long; a common mistake to make. actress sitting

I’m now painting over work that doesn’t stand up.
It makes what remains stronger, and adds a bit of drama; if I am obliterating something the new work will have to be better.actress standing form the backactress standing
