MORE FIGURATIVE STUDIES – PASTEL PAINTINGS

I had planned to look at developing a more forceful and abstract style to my life paintings. I wanted to experiment with the many sketches that I have and explore possibilities and new approaches away from the constraints and distractions a life session imposes, such as finding a viewpoint, contending with poor lighting or being herded into quick sketches – things that drive you into resorting to the same old approach in order to get something down in the time that’s left.

As you can see so far I havent had that time to make such leap and have drifted back into life groups after my holiday. Here are a couple of recent studies. Hopefully I will make some progress in the weeks ahead – well I have a plan anyway.

Other life drawings are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. Thanks Laureen. Julie is a great model and gets into interesting poses. They do play music at this session, so that is probably what she is listening to. I always feel sorry for models at sessions were there is only silence.
