G asleep. After Francis Bacon’s Man in Blue Series. Just before starting this painting the class were talking about Francis Bacon. I was talking about how much I admired his Man in blue series. The feeling of these works seems to have crept into my painting. The model ‘G’ always has such presence, as always the painting is influenced by the sitter.
Francis Bacon: Man in Blue
Two studies from earlier in the evening. The first with the brush held at arms length, the second made with my right (wrong) hand.
