It has been a while since I posted. After painting the portraits for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days project, I decided to tackle something a little different to my usual work and I really enjoyed it. The trick about painting something like this is that you need a model to work from. As an everyday person who is also an artist, it is not that easy to find someone to model for you. As an art student I was lucky enough to do life drawing and we had models who would pose for us.
This painting has reminded me how I loved figure drawing and painting. So keep watching this space, I am going to venture into this field a bit more.
I almost forgot to share the collage below. It shows the painting through the different stages from beginning to end.
