(Need to click image to make it less blurry) This figure painting was done in July, but never completed since quite a few sessions were missed (cancelled class, model taking a day off, and a day out of town) Here, I tried a new approach for figure painting—transfer drawing method! The idea is to draw out the whole model on paper, and transfer the drawing onto canvas. Then, paint it in w/out worrying about measuring things. I’m not quite sure I like this method–since it feels a lot less intuitive and I kind of enjoy figuring out problems while painting, but I can see why some artists do it, as it can save a little time also.
I’ll be part of a music video gallery show next month! So get ready ; ).
