Life drawing winter term round up
I want to see which BG colours were the most successful so I can cherry pick the right ones for pre-painting canvasses for next term.
Looks like the blues and purples work best (the carpet is a manky dark grey/blue and the walls are duck egg blue in the main room) so no surprises there really. I’ve got a soft spot for the green and yellow ones too – its knocking on boring otherwise.
Reds, oranges, ochres and darks are all out, as is white.
Here’s a compendium of close-ups.

Really happy with the way the head turned out on this one
Turns out its really tricky to paint on yellow, good fun.
Had to round off the term with a pic with no BG colour. Going to look at the collection from this term and see which colours work best, then paint up some canvasses for next term and go nuts…!
