Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter weekending Sept 8

I'm getting a little behind if I'm to continue with weekly postings
some from the two sketch groups

























and a 60 minute oil portrait, and a pastel sketch from the portrait group (later purchased by the sitter)

Re: weekending Sept 8

Lovely work as ever Mac, how on earth do you manage to produce such an excellent oil portrait in one hour?

Lovely sensuous drawings. The studies of the big lady are particularly appealing (does that say more about me?) Super portraits.

Re: weekending Sept 8

Thanks David, we always do our portraits in 20 minute blocks, so usually after 3 (occasionally more) if I'm satisfied enough, I'll switch to another medium or position if I can.
I don't normally, but did the other month take a photo at each stage(don't think I posted this one here)







thanks Bethany


thanks Harry...if they are appealing I must have done something right!

Mac

Re: weekending Sept 8

Thanks for these, I really enjoy your minimal use of value and edge control to hold the figures and forms together. Your weekly figure work helps keep me focused on the elements in my own work and that I should be taking care to make more controlled marks.

Re: weekending Sept 8

As you've accustomed us are all splendid works, thanks for having published them, one thing, the last of the photos published in the first message, pastel work, this struck me so much the three-dimensionality of the face, it is a portrait that seems to come out of the monitor .,. did not seem to be in front of the computer.
All magnificent.
fantastic the last portrait with passages, nice to see this evolution, it also helps to think what happens in charcoal portraits, thank you for all the works of the post, they are so beautiful

I'm jealous of your time with real models from life Mac, solid work as usual.

Re: weekending Sept 8

Delo thanks, it's nice to know they are actually of some value to others!

you're welcome Joe. thanks for the comments!

I appreciate the privilege of the live models Bill... I sometimes wonder how long I will be able to afford to keep doing it!
