Life drawing. SL.

SL with green

SL with green and artist. Acrylic and charcoal on canvas. 6o minutes.
After going to the Anni Albers show at the Tate Modern, I wanted to up my game on the colour and texture front. The painting gets thinner the further back the object is in the image. The rubber plant is impasto, the artist (David; you can tell by his trademark cross legged stance) is scumbled. The model has grace; placed against the dark grey, her skin has a luminosity.

SL on blue twice

SL on blue x2. Acrylic and charcoal on canvas board. 30 minutes.
I like the mixture of colours, textures and mediums.

SL with tripod and in pinks

SL with tripod and in pink. Acrylic and pencil on the back of a canvas board. 30 minutes.
According to a good photographer it looks a bit like a Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, which I’m happy with.

The smaller pink lady was the warm up pose. You can tell by the tentative marks.
