Life Drawing 1: The blue & red rooms


Tania x2 on blue

Title: The blue room. You have the feeling you are in a large room, close to the model. Enough information is there to set the scene, to tell you where you are. There is something pleasing about leaving some paper unpainted. Something good about the lengthening of her back. The purple is nicely false as well.

A detail of the above. This figure was painted first, with a large expanse waiting for the next pose. Both took 30 minutes each.

Poses in the red room. The horizontal line connects the two poses.

Tania x3
Three figures on blue. I wanted the small figure to look like one of Matisse’s sculptures that he adds to his compositions. A way of pointing out the plasticity of the work. This could do with a good day on this. I can imagine the central figure being abstracted into a series of curves.

This was a small sketch from a previous class. The composition seems to work.
