Visiting two of my paintings at their new home. Thank you to @cardencunietti for creating such a beautiful place for them and to @josiemullings and @timdaish for being such fantastic models.
Not so much finished as stopped... reached the end of my 8 week block of @lara.atelier drawing evening classes. We did this one pose for 3-hour-long sessions (with breaks). So this is approx 18 hours' solid drawing. Learnt so many new things, which I hope to apply to future drawings. Sight Size is an interesting technique, I can see it could be useful in some situations. Have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside @atelierpaien and @amizontess, being brilliantly taught by @tomgreenwoodfineart #arts_help #sketch_daily #dailydrawoff #drawanyway #art_spotlight #instaart #instaartist #britishartist #contemporaryart #pencildrawing #figuredrawing #lifedrawing #linedrawing #realism #instadraw #drawingoftheday #nude #femalenude #observationaldrawing #shading #monochrome #nudemodel #sightsize #charcoal #nitram
So it turns out it's not as straightforward as I'd thought to set my studio up to do a #sightsize #castdrawing . 13 metres of black drape, pretty much a whole day and many more grey hairs later I think I've got the light working for me. I invested so much time and energy into providing myself with a beautifully north lit studio I never realised it was going to be so difficult to control the light that floods in. And by the time I'd got it set up... it was too dark to start. And the backing paper is creased! So a cup of tea by the stove it was.
