Vivi - Life painting

    Newer Older

    I did this some time ago and had forgotten to upload it. I was at life drawing last weekend and was about to upload the painting I did but preferred this painting. A four hour study in oil paint, I'm not a huge fan of starting direct with paint preferring to draw it out on paper first then transferring to a board.

      You have such a nice way with line and paint quality -- very beautiful.

      Well, I understand your preference---but the immediacy of this is so powerful--maybe you really do NOT need to have a perfect transferred drawing? This is BEAUTIFUL.

      for this one I spent the first hour drawing it out on paper then transferred it to a board during the break, by covering the back with graphite and drawing over the lines with a biro. Then work direct with paint. I admire folk who do the initial drawing direct with paint, although I like the approach I do it feels gutsy paint right from the start.

      The study is pretty cool. I switch on my studies between making the design first and then transfer it and sketch directly on the support that will receive the painting.

      Nice pose and composition. I'd love to see the finished piece to see if any of the line work remains and to see how you handle the edges.
