I have been attending life drawing/painting classes for over a year. Life classes are mainly sketch paintings done within a limited time between 30-1 hour. So have been inspired to use my portrait skills to paint a detailed painting of the female nude , allowing me to slowly build up the layers of paint. This particular painting is of Jane who attends my channelling group & has kindly posed for the life painting . I now realize how challenging rendering the human form is as a artist .
19/10/17 I have been busy with this life painting. The second layer of skin tone is near completion . I have redesigned the bottom layout of the composition. The rose flower design seemed appropriate for the life painting subject. Next i can really focus on refining the skin tone .
