We had our life drawing group outside today. The weather was pleasant, the artists were happy and the model was great.
I stuck with my on going theme of monochrome starts and I was very surprised of how well the drawing went. There is always room for improvement but I didn’t feel much frustration during the process, which is usually a sign that all is going bad.
We switched to a second pose after an hour or so of posing. The standing pose was good but the second seated pose was even better.
With this small size of canvas I’m finding it very difficult to get some detail and accuracy in the face of the model.

The drawing with paint brings a very nostalgic old time feel to the work. I think it also has to do with the clothing on the model, but it has a very 19th century feel to it in the color and tone.
Yeah I totally agree, I’m reminded of Tiepolo sometimes.
