Lying down on the job
This week's ASOC portrait and life drawing work group and a first time model, Patrick. At the end of session Patrick remarked that he didn't realise that modelling was such hard work. So, first off is a gouache of him lying down. It's the first of the long poses, gouache on water colour paper (70 cm by 50 cm).
Here are two more gouaches from the other two long poses (both gouache on water colour paper, 50 cm by 70 cm).
And here are some of the sketches from the 5 minute poses, all charcoal (plus some white pastel) on newsprint 51 cm by 76 cm.
