Figure Study

oil 12x9 inches not for sale With this study from my Tuesday night class, I concentrated on natural skin tones. I used the Zorn palette with two reds: cad red light in the lights and cad red medium in the shadows. This helped me mix the temperatures I wanted. I'm really happy with this study in that I was able to get a reasonable likeness and also an emotional quality. FYI, she is blonde and wearing a large black scarf. I was so far away from the model, I couldn't see much detail in her facial features. I was forced to simplify. A good thing.

  1. Une très belle étude... J'aime beaucoup les nuances de couleurs de sa peau où la lumière vient flirter... et la caresser.
    J'aime la sensualité qu'elle dégage.
    Gros bisous
