Re: Virtual Life Class No. 10 (Female Nude)...

Hi,

Would you all mind if a stranger to this forum joins you for a bit of practice. I do a lot of painting but not nearly enough drawing so I have resolved to try to do more. This took me about an hour.



Dave,

I'm just down the road from you, in Ampthill, Bedfordshire, and visit Rushden a lot as it was where I grew up and I still have family there. Would love to join you one day if that's possible, although I've had no practice at drawing from live models.

Hey Joy great drawing...I have it on good athority that the drawing group Dave visits are very accepting of new members, and I'm sure Dave mentioned that they put on lovely glasses of wine for the breaks between frantic figure drawing. I'm sure you would be very welcome.

Here is a portrait of the lovely Vic...hope I hope I did you justice Mrs S!!!

Re: Virtual Life Class No. 10 (Female Nude)...

Thanks Mr Shop for your comments and invitation! It's a shame I'm not a bit closer!
Have driven myself mad with this one, I'm surprised there is any paper left the amount of rubbing out I've done! Lost track of how long, have just come back to it a few times over the last couple of days. I can't look at it anymore! The left arm and hand nearly broke me but although it's not quite there, it is loads better than before and I kinda cheated . I saved the photo to my paint package, turned it upside down and zoomed in!! It really helped me!


Cheers all, really enjoying all your work

Re: Virtual Life Class No. 10 (Female Nude)...

Joy……great to see you in and really nice sketch.

I looked at your gallery, with all those wonderful figures you should be a regular. Looking forward to seeing more.

Kris ….both your pastels are great. You have a real knack for catching Vik’s personality. It stands out in both. But you’re right, the first one really has attitude.

Zoe…..the hard work was worth the effort, this is really nicely done, especially with such a foreshortened pose. You’ve even captured the likeness in her face.

Joe …..you’ve really got your eye in now. Your line work is getting to the point where the forms are consistently 3D, without he shading! Great work.


And Mark……..what can I say. The matching portrait set is fantastic. I know where they’d be if it was my wall.

I don't know what one of these is Pauline but I'm guessing I may have had one too.
I think it is excellent, you may have tightened it up, but there is plenty of nice loose strokes in there, maybe we will have to take it one step at a time with you and slowly ease you into the loose way of life (pardon the expression).

Thanks to everyone for their kind words, and the work is looking fantastic!!

Re: Virtual Life Class No. 10 (Female Nude)...

Just the briefest of visits while I run around gthe country and prepare to run around at home to organise Eli's first birthday party. Birthday is today....party tomorrow.

Until I get the chance to comment more fully I just have to say top stuff everyone...

Mark and Pauline you are continuing to out do yourselves.

Pauline...any chance of a close up of the face? I don't believe you are a witch but you certainly are magical....ooops....I've come over all Roger ( Hi Roger )

Promise to say more soon....
