4 Life Drawing sessions. 3. Relax / Tense.

Relax. Acrylics and pencil on paper. 70x100cm.
The paper was prepared with the messy grey-green. The light blue was quickly put on, then the drawing. in the last five minutes of the pose, the pinks and whites were applied. The background blues were painted in my studio. There is something pleasingly simple about this painting, everyone in the art class liked it. The diagonal composition is quite ‘stable’.
In the background Mr. Skellington is in the middle and the blues either side. The blues symbolise the infinite. What am I trying to say?

Tense. Acrylics and pencil on paper. 70x100cm.
This was the 30 minute pose. Started with drawing lines with a straight edge, like a jokey version of cubism. The paper has recorded the speed in which the paint was applied. It could do with some more work, some more colours to stop it looking so… dour.

The model, who is an actress, has great presence which shows in these details.

Two of the quicker poses.

  1. I love the opaque and powerful red against the more ethereal and pastel cool blues in Relax.

      Many thanks. The red was made with at least three different colours of acrylic and pencils. The cool blues go well with skin colours as the make the warmer tones come forward.
