Thanks as always to Briony – a great model with regal poise.
Someone described my blog as a “mixture of joy, despair and hope” which made me laugh. I can say I was despairing after life drawing last weekend. I had clear ideas and couldn’t persuade the gouache to work the way I wanted – it wouldn’t lift off the prepared surface to create negative shapes nor build to create layered colours. The preliminary sketch above was the best thing to come form this session. Huh!
Here are a couple I did earlier.
