Life Drawing. How do I get to Carnegie Hall?

Practice man, practice.

How do I get to Carnegie Hall? Acrylics, pencil, oils and oil pastels on prepared paper. 100 x 70cm.
Sometimes a piece of work just takes time and effort to finish. This started off as a 30 minute sketch. The tight diagonal composition was pleasing. There was something there, so over the next 4 weeks I added, moved and covered the surface with different media. There were sketches and notes made. In the end the build up of colour and texture makes the whole thing work. It’s still being worked on – the eyes have moved.

Some details of the work showing the different textures.

    Really nice work, Trevor… Composition, images, palette and values… You have developed a rich style in your figure work… Wonderful mark-making in all your media… Bravo!!

      Many thanks Tom. That’s really flattering. There is a lot more I could have said about this work. Really interesting what happens when the subject is not present.

        Before moving to FL, attended a weekly open figure session in NJ for a few years… Haven’t found an open figure session here, so haven’t done any figure work for the past couple years… Will take your example and use a reference photo as inspiration… see what unfolds… Thanks…

        Have you got a pet? They are good practice as you love them (probably) and they are about. Florida and life drawing, sounds like you could start a class!
