Due to various reasons I haven’t been painting life models since 2019.
There is a small exclusive set of life drawing sessions over the summer holidays and I was lucky enough to be invited. The weather may be hot and the room small but the quality of life models and enjoyment of the process was the same as ever.
This model is one of the best on the circuit and has a regal bearing that is good to capture.
Looking blue. Acrylics and pencil on large paper.
This figure was painted in the first 30 minutes. There was another 10 minutes of trying up and adding yellow ochre at home to react with the Prussian blue.
Some details of the work.
4 Studies of T. Acrylics and pencil on large paper. 5 or 10 minute poses.
Nefertiti. Acrylics and pencil on large paper.
A hour pose with a nice simple palette. Some painting of the background in slightly different colours went on at home.
Told you she looked regal.
