Life drawing 09.02.2018. The Look | The shadow.

So, you have a scene. What do you paint? What do you leave in or take out? What colours to use? All in an hour.
The mixture of decisions and the muscle memory is thrilling to me.
So, here are some of the points in the painting:
A restricted, mainly cold palette.
A fellow artist featured prominently.
Easels abstracted.
Diagonals and verticals highlighted.
The difference of tone between skin and background accentuated.
