Life Drawing 3rd July 2014

Some good failing tonight, really positive. I couldn’t be bothered to paint up some canvasses, so I tried to do a whole background thing. Didn’t work. White is wack, yo.

Lesson learnt is you need to prep that shit! Man.

Life Drawing 12th June 2014

I end up doing the same old thing at the moment so tried to do things a bit differently in the second one doing the highlights and lowlights first before the colour. Enjoyed. More play, more better.

Starting to get quite the little collection of canvas studies now which is nice.

Life Drawing 5th June 2014

Feeling like I was having a heart attack for most of the session aside (I think I have found my caffeination saturation point…) I had fun with these.

Clem hates the non-opaque BG’s (“I can see the painting looks really nice, but I can’t bear to look as its being covered in acid rain….”) so if I’m to stand any chance of these things ever to be hung around the house the remainder of my canvasses will need an executive decision on whether I colour them in flat.

The second picture was a testament to last minute gung-ho-ness with the white tone behind the hair, so I’ve photoshopped it out to what I thought I sort of wanted it to be. I don’t believe in painting over or touching things up after the fact otherwise you just don’t fucking learn. Love your mistakes! …so you don’t make them again…

Life Drawing 8th May 2014

Paintings from tonight. Need to sort out a better way of photographing the canvasses. Didn’t have much fun with the first one, I could blame it on all sorts of things (poor lighting, forgot my brushes of choice, knackered…) but I just wasn’t feeling it. Dig the second one tho. Starting to regret not painting up more brightly coloured canvas BGs…
