Wednesday 19th April

Model: Mike
Oil on canvas board. I tried to capture the pose more acurately here and feel the model
reclining in the armchair. I lightened the tone slightly but kept color differences between the skin and the background.

Oil on canvas board. Almost 3 hours. Could have done with another hour.
I'm still not applying the paint as thick as I would like.

Model: Karen
8x10.Oil on canvas. 2 1/2 hours.
OK, so again I should be careful of the anatomy of the study and not rush into painting without constantly checking proportions. But we had turned off some of the overhead lights and it was a little darker than usual so I'm using that as my excuse. The original does look better than this scanned image.
