Rudolph, life drawing class



Pin It
Rudolph, long pose, oil on canvas
This was a long pose, 2x2 hours from life and I worked on the face at home in between the sessions.
Apologies for the wobbly surface, I taped the canvas to board but couldn't properly stretch the surface.

What a great painting from life! Will you work on it any more, or will you leave it as it is?

Hi Sharon, thanks for the kind words. I think I'll leave it for now, I'm a little afraid that it will loose the spontaneity from working from life. But , who knows :)
