Love the new model and how you've painted her in watercolours. Agree with tag you're it - inspiring works! The drawing of the guy kneeling with his back facing us (3rd pix from the top) is really great.

Re: weekend Sept 8

thanks David, I can have a tendency to forget about the neck, but with a beautiful elegant neck it's hard to ignore!

Brent thanks, glad you find it so!

always looking to improve Bethany!

Constance thanks, I'm not a watercolourist, but I thought I'd start bringing them along to see what I can do with them! I'll be booking that model for my own group next term

Mac

Re: weekend Sept 8

You've excelled yourself here, Mac. Lots of elegant, articulate shapes. The series of the black girl is lovely, the display has a real rhythm about it. The double figure sketch in blue is so alive. The pick of the bunch for me is the long haired lady's back. So difficult to capture properly and you've gone and been and done it! Her vu perdu portrait is also lovely.

All good Mac but the 35 min portrait stands out.

Re: weekend Sept 8

thanks Gordon, with that portrait I knew I had a limited time and I think the distinctive features of the aboriginal sitter helped with decisiveness.

thanks Nathan

Mac
