Life Class - Week 10
Acrylic on 20x16" canvas
I approached life class a little differently this week, usually I tackle the short 3-5 minute poses in ink and then move onto something else for the 25-30 minute poses. This week I did all 6 poses on the same surface, a 20x16" canvas, using a limited palette in acrylic.
Most of the first pose was sketched onto some masking tape I had placed over the canvas, only the values show now in the small squares left behind after the tape was removed. I like the effect, it adds a modern, geometric twist to an sensual and otherwise curvaceous subject.
It felt really good working on canvas again, especially in such a loose and free style!
