Two times Julia


Last of the live model classes (for now). We had Julia again, a lovely model. The object of todays exercise was to combine coloured paper, oil pastels and acrylic paint into a painting.

The basic idea was to apply transparent acrylic colour to leave the pasted on coloured paper as "visible" as possible. But as the paper was too vivid and saturated, I had no choice but to paint rather opaque.
The second one (below) was more transparent. Each painting, 50x70cm, took an hour to make.
