More feet

This one looks better as a photo than it does in reality.

The background colour was a pre-painted experiment, works well but haven't revisited it as a colour since.

Have done 2 studies of feet at two different sessions. Both 20 min poses. In truth, to do feet justice you can't really do the rest of the body as well in that time. So I focus on this one bit and to hell with the person attached to them.

It's survival of the feetest.

Red Again

Continuing the theme.

More red

I think this was a 10 min pose, so not a huge amount of time, but it benefits from that as it is just big washes of two colours, with a quick drop of shadow just to sit the body down.

And walk away from it.

Good model.

Say it like Chiwetel Ejiofor in "Kinky Boots". Rrrreeeeeeeeeeddddddduuuhhh.

One of the developments last year was the suggestion and adoption of red backgrounds.

Stops the skin colours looking so dead, like they do on black.

Will post some other examples over the next few days.

Life Drawing.

Always enjoy a good back, especially one as animated as this one.

Sometimes you get it all right and a drawing just comes together and works. 

Dull Boy

So it was all work and no play last year, and am guilty as charged.

Time to claw this back from the brink of extinction and revive it's fortunes. With a last chance posting  on the very toehold of January.
