This figure painting is finished after 7 sessions. The purpose of this painting was to figure out a definite process with painting the figure from life.
I’ve spent a total of 14 hours on this figure painting. Most of this time was well past any stage I could reach while in a live figure drawing session. If I painted this model from a regular open studio session I would probably only have about two hours of time to work. Although, the first two hours of work may be the most important.
