I’m itching to get back to working from the live model. For this painting, I was keeping it simple by using basic shapes and minimal colors.
I still have to wait till January before the life drawing here on the island starts up again. I’m hoping that I don’t fail miserably at painting from the live figure once I get back into that weekly habit. I’m still skeptical about drawing and painting from a photograph, I feel as though there are too many possibilities for laziness here.
On the other hand, whenever I figure out some subject matter with a purpose I’m almost certain that I will be working from photographs. So in that instance working from photo is some great experience.
