Always a fun weekly event.
I thought she was going well for working in the dark. For some brilliant reason I had my easel turned AWAY from the light. Maybe because we breeze in right before start time. Hopefully next time I will set it up right.
Obvious problem was the bottom leg was too long. Her knee sticks out to far. I think that was due to slight shifts in the pose during breaks. Hard to resume the exact pose every time.
The background needs more work. The brown is too dark and those triangles at her feet need to go! 😳
Hard to paint such a big piece in a few hours. I think I have about five hours in it now. Dos I say I use big brushes.
This is Al Beyer’s aka painting. He was painting a few feet to my left. Always interesting to see how he goes about painting the model.
And how different the model looks just a few feet to my right or left. Al to my left barely saw her head.
Lee drawing on my right had her full profile whereas I barely saw her nose.
Als after two hour session which is really an hour and a half or so.
Colors used: all golden or liquitex -titanium white, nickel Azo gold, pyrrole red, cad yellow, ultramarine blue, burnt umber, alizarin Crimson. I buy artist grade but whichever is cheaper or the color I like better.
Thanks for reading.
