Acrylic and a little charcoal and pencil over an old painting on paper.
The model moved to a new pose every five minutes, picking up objects arranged in front of him. As you can see the choice was made to overlay each pose, so there are a fair few hands.
I’ve been looking at early Velazquez paintings and his simple palette and technique, so chose only dark and light grey paint and one size brush. The charcoal and pencils were added at home in between working on design jobs.
Palomino Blackwing Pencil on paper.
Lots of moving poses. The dirty marks are from being rolled up with the painting above. The drawings started at the top right and ended bottom left. Yes I’m left-handed.
