My life modelling is starting a bit earlier than I planned this term, as tomorrow’s model at Papcastle has had to pull out. So I’m taking her place. I suppose it’s always handy to have an artist who is prepared to be the model if all else fails!
I’m also starting teaching classes soon at Workington, so recycled the picture of the late and much missed Wilf for the poster. I used a different technique for this picture, working from the ideas in Force, a book on life drawing for animators. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Force-Dynamic-Life-Drawing-Animators/dp/0240808452/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1347280193&sr=8-1 so it was a bit looser than my usual style. I also cheated outrageously and put in a sepia tint and white highlights in Photoshop afterwards.
