Dave, oil on panel, 10" x 8"
Every now and again, Artspace in Raleigh, holds a long pose figure session where one three hour pose is revisited 3 times over the course of a month. They are starting the New Year off right, with such sessions this January. I will be enjoying this cost affective way of getting some life painting in. Here is what I came up with so far on Saturday. There was some talk by some of the other participants to move the model against the wall next time, or even switch the pose. I was hoping to get at least one more session on this one (there are some cool pipes up behind his head that I would like to get in) , but if not, that's ok. It's just good to get the eyes moving. Thank you to our fantastic model Dave - who held the pose for 45 minutes at a time. Ouch!
