Portrait in Orange. Acrylics with glazing medium, pencil and oil paint on prepared board. A3.
Made in one of the hottest days in London. Quite a workout. The Mary Ward Centre had some fans working overtime and both John Close the tutor and the model were troupers! The draining heat is retained in the painting. At home I added some more glazes, especially on the glasses. Yes, I know, the glasses are not exactly right but that is how I saw them.
The painting without frame, two close-ups showing the gloss on the glasses and skull drawn while waiting.
