Today we were drawing/painting Linde in one pose. It was a private session and there was no time limit. So I focused first on getting the proportions right with pencil and then carefully added some watercolor and lines with watercolor pencil. Don’t think it’s finished yet, will see….
And the next sketch I forgot to post last Sunday. It’s on thick grey colored paper, which is also useable for paint. Will use that to experiment a little during the holidays.
Today we had a beautiful model! She is the lead singer of a ten man band (soul/jazz style from ’63 to the ‘70s). in her repertoire there are songs of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Whitney Houston, Ella … etc. I just heard a few songs on Youtube and I’m blown away. What an artist! We were very lucky to have her.
This morning we had a live drawing session with lovely Chandana as our model. Lately I’m really not content with my work so I didn’t post for a while, but I keep practicing, searching. Here’s one of the drawings (15 min), just posting this mainly to push myself, I think. Her hand is somewhat strange, should have worked more on the mudra that she made.
Our last portrait session of the year is mostly also a live drawing session. Didn’t know where to begin, what I wanted, so I made several drawings. Here two of them; one with the whole figure in which I tried to forget about getting it perfect, just played a bit with colour and the composition. The second a portrait, with not too much lines, well there was not much time left anyway:
