It's a bit of a pastel-ey mess. I like that this class is pushing me to try different things but this kind of art really isn't me. Only a couple of weeks left, hopefully the penny will drop some point soon.
This weeks life model was a female body builder! I never managed to finish my colour piece, although I am getting the hang of using gouache. Hopefully, we'll get this model again and I'll focus on getting some solid drawings rather than worrying about the colour assignments, she gave some great short poses.
This weeks colour piece was not as disastrous as last weeks but I still felt incredibly out of my comfort zone. It took a while to build up all the colours on this piece because I didn't have the courage to paint opaquely like you can with gouache, instead I built up layers of washed out colour.
I really struggled in last nights class, which is why I'm only posting this warm-up sketch from it! The colour drawings I did seriously look like I regurgitated a box pastels onto paper. >.> Hopefully it was just an 'off' night, although I did feel really out of my comfort zone X3
