Clothed life model painting

We managed to increase the narrative possibilities of our painting last week by creating thumb nail sketches that concentrated largely on colour mood and composition so I think it will be good to start off with another thumbnail sketch on Friday before painting a longer piece.

Although it is impossible to recreate something as richly textured as this Bonnard painting in a short time it is possible to create a strong mood with dramatic lighting as in this Richard Diebenkorn or Michael Borremans.

We will set one pose for the whole session so it will be up to you to decide how long you want to spend playing around with the composition and trying out thumbnail ideas for your painting.
