Life drawings 05/10/20

Life drawings 5/10/20. Still trying to let go of representation and local colour, so tried to keep in mind Matisse’s Blue Nude as well as Picasso’s maximum, ‘If you don’t have red, use blue’. Acrylic, acrylic, pastels, ink & charcoal all on A1 paper (81x59cm)

Studies from the first (socially distanced) life drawing class a few weeks back. Such a pleasure to be drawing and painting again and meeting other artists. (All A1 size on paper 84cm x 59cm. 1 acrylic, 2 hrs. 2 charcoal and chalk, 1 hr. 3 acrylic, 30mins. 4 soft pastels, multiple 5 min poses)
