Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Back Again

I haven't posted here for a while - just got really busy. We kept both our lifedrawing and portrait groups going right through summer this year. That was quite an achievement since we got the best summer in living memory in Ireland this year and most of our regulars were either plein air painting or on the beach! Anyway, here are some recent quick ones (mostly 2 min but some 5's in there also):-












And a recent portrait, "Fran". About two hours from life and probably another couple of hours in the studio refining it. It's oil on 16" x 12" MDF Board.




Michael

Re: Back Again

I like the bold curves of your figures. The portrait has worked very well.

Re: Back Again

I like them all! The portrait painting is really nice, esp the skin tone and the reflection on the glasses.

Thanks Constance. I think working from life helps a lot with portraiture.

Re: Back Again

good to see things are buzzing in Ireland Michael, you are capturing the essence with the quick poses... and really good work with the portrait

Re: Back Again

Love the colours in the portrait Michael (particularly the beard) and the movement in the life drawings.
