Had a wonderful time painting from the live model Wednesday night...I brought a 20 x 24 canvas and started with doing all of the gesture drawings in watercolor pencil on the canvas...then I washed it all away and gave myself a very cool backgound to start the long pose on. There's nothing more intimidationg (and exciting I guess) than a plain white canvas waiting for that first mark!
Of course I forgot my camera, so I didn't get any shots of the process...but this is how it looks after about 2 hours of painting with acrylics.
I think I'll end up abstracting it a bit more...I have to play around with it in my studio (it is currently upside-down on my easel!) I will keep you posted if and when I make progress!
