Life Drawing. Lady in grey, red and green

Friday life drawing has started again, this time in a small group of talented artists at St.Lukes, South Islington. I miss friendly The Mary Ward Centre with it’s purpose built life room. The tutor is the same, the great John Close, the room is smaller but interesting and there are different props, including a nice chair.

Lady in grey, red and green. Acrylic and pencil on paper. 95x70cm.
Nice to be using acrylics again, more immediacy and quicker drying time, less worry about paint on my clothes. The paint is mixed from tester pots with names like ‘Scotch grey’, ‘Vineyard and 'de Nimes’. The chair leg really helps the composition, with it echoing the models legs. Note the amount of time spent on the blanket, which in real life is dark magenta.

Some 30 and 15 minute poses.
I felt very calm and just let the work happen. You can see the different techniques used.
