Since October, I’ve been doing weekly life drawing and painting classes and I am learning so much from them.
Monday was the last one before Christmas and we spent the whole day on one pose. This time we had a young male model who was very slim with wide shoulders (male models are usually older with a lot of girth!)
I decided on a blood red background and used yellow, blue and magenta with a bit of greeny grey for flesh tones. As I had all day to work on it, it is pretty much finished – maybe a wee bit of tidying up of the hands and feet – we’ll see.
The shadow of his arm gave me problems, and I am not 100% happy with his shoulder. As we are not allowed to take photos of the model, I have nothing to reference in order to make changes so might just leave well alone.
My favourite bit is the head. Let me know what you think.
