Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter female nude (wip)

hello everyone,

This is a piece I'm working on at our atelier in montreal. I have spent 15 hours on it so far. It is painted on a 5' by 2.5' wooden panel in oil paint. The first two images are of the first sitting where I did the drawing direct with raw umber - painting alla prima in the lights. the second two are after 6 hours.
Let me know what you think!

Re: female nude (wip)

Hi.

Great of you to share this with us!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm getting the popcorn!!!!! Will follow you every step of the way.

Looking good so far. I love your warm shadows... the reds... you could probably fry an egg on her hip.

Oh, - and couldn't you use the uploader in the future? That way, we all see your images as we post our replies.

Cheers,

//matt

Re: female nude (wip)

Thank you for sharing this with us in the form of a WIP!

I'm settling in, and have a pot of tea with me -- Assam Superb. Anyone care for a cup?

It is fascinating to watch the emergence of form and planes.

Re: female nude (wip)

hello everyone!

Thanks for all your feedback! I have just completed another 3 hour session with the model. In this session, I repainted the light mass of the torso and head with a translucent cool layer. This was painted with various earth pigments, cobalt blue, naples yellow, and lead white. The medium was ventetian turpentine, stand oil, and turpentine - all in equal parts - but then thinned out with additional turpentine until optimum viscosity is achieved.
I repainted the reflected light with opaque paint and tightened up the drawing
overall. The next session I will focus on the hands and feet and start painting the background. I try to alternate warm and cool in each layer of paint. I appreciate the feedback!

This is really gorgeous. It's nice to have a model hold one pose for so many sessions.

I can only suggest that the illusion of reality might be enhanced if you were to put a little more emphasis on reflected lights.

I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

Re: female nude (wip)

Turlogh - I took your advice and worked on the reflected light - thanks for your comments! - the last images are of the piece after 24 hours. Tonight I am painting again for another 3 hours and I will work on the details. I am going to work on the background for a while and then return to the model once the background is resolved. I am using Canada balsam, stand oil, and turpentine in equal measures. (thinning with additional turp) I'll post the results tomorrow.
