THREE FIGURATIVE LIFE STUDIES – PASTEL, ACRYLIC AND CHARCOAL

I managed to get the full figure on the sheet for once with this conte pastel study, but it does reduce the ability to develop detail.

I used the background as a middle tone and so had the figure coming in and out of focus or looking like a piece of  Emmental cheese, depending on your viewpoint.

A charcoal study with strong toplight completes the set of recently completed work  all done in  various life groups around Liverpool.

  1. Thanks Deb. Plenty of practice. I think drawing and painting the human form helps with all aspects of painting and the observation it requires develops you as an artist. I also use life sessions to play around with different media.
