Day 1093 Its Saturday

Ilaina, painted on Strathmore Bristol, drawn wa 6B pencil.  I must be rusty not having gone for a couple of weeks. Actually was nervous today. Too much caffeine?! I am never nervous at lifemodeling but I was today.  

I actually like it but it doesn’t look quite like our lovely Ilaina who is such a great model. She does a lot of yoga is very muscular and toned and poses steadily as a rock. 

I lifted color here and there and added to the background. She’d had a purple blob on her chin. And the shadow under her eye on the one on her nose has hard edges. 

Eek what’s with the purple blob?!!  

I love the background done w a 2″ flat cheap Joes Golden Fleece and a spray bottle and a little dabbing.  

First break forty minutes.  Colors used vermilion yellow ochre cobalt ultra violet mineral violet.  Background and hair burnt sienna and cerulean and burnt umber.
