Life drawing: 11.05.18. G & Francis Bacon.

G asleep after bacon
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.

Man in Blue V, 1954
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.

  1. Oh these are stunning! The blue really stands out against the skin tones and the figure speech, brush strokes. Love it!! I have yet to venture in painting people rather than sketching out my life drawings. Great work!
