Just a regular "Model Night"... a seated nude, and my goal was simply to describe the form in light and space. I feel that this one really exemplifies the main goal goal each time there is a model in front of me. Juts that, and if handled properly, the whole figure should read accurately, the gesture and volume should feel well stated. I created this piece in 2011, at one of the model sessions. It may have been a 40 minute pose. All of the studies from this time are on masonite which was first painted with neutral grey #6 acrylic.
