Life Drawing 24.11.17. Preparations for a long pose.

The next two weeks will be on one pose.
Composition-wise I like the silence on the left, the artist and their reflection and the model in a dynamic seated pose. The side-on artist contrasts nicely with the model.
I think the finished artwork will be square. Rather funny that I didn’t see the rogue masking tape that covers her modesty.Lady reclining with artist in the background

Here’s a detail of the above.Lady reclining with artist in the background detail

Blue card works well as background. The guitar and torso was in place before the model arrived. The two poses were worked into the composition.Lady on electric blue card x 2 with guitar etc

A quick 15 minute pose. The image was worked up in acrylics with 4B pencil added near the end and finished with a little more paint.Lady on cream card looking right full figure

A detail of the above. Taking some of the detail away helps sometimes.Lady on cream card looking right

Black card is harder to work on, too stark. It gives a strange stark, ghost-like feel to the images made on it.

    Love these, and the one with the horizon line at the hip level is my favourite – reminds me of a Greek statue. Great stuff. 🙂
