Figure & Portrait: Second day of life painting

This is the second and final day we worked from the model. After the initial under painted layer, students applied a second coat with yellow ochre, titanium white, burnt umber and prussian blue. These paintings are “studies” of the human form. They are not meant to have a finished or complete look. The purpose of this first painting was to focus on the volume, value and proportions of the body. It was less about color and more about the connection and study of the model in real space. This will offset and give balance to the piece we begin next week. It is from photo. – Scott Hutchison
