a pair of poses

one day to go

to go. The next three weeks are going to be spent on one more drawing pose and one more painting pose.

Last time we spoke, my portrait of Sarah was a mess, but in the end, it pulled itself together, and I am actually quite happy with it. As I probably went too large with the drawing, I definitely went too small with the painting. My initial plan was to fit the entire body onto the canvas - which made working on the face quite difficult (ended up spending too much time trying to tweak it, and therefore, didn't get much body work done). I haven't posted a picture of it yet, but I will once the paint is dry and I add a little retouch varnish to bring back the colors.

I have a really good feeling about this three week sprint to the finish, so keep checking back. late.
