Good Sketch day…

I am much happier with my sketches this time around. I felt confident while using pen and wash to capture the male-model’s different poses. I want to emulate Charles Reid but I seem to be mixing in a little Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud in there too! No harm in that, but I want to be more subtle in my execution. I still have problems mixing Cerulean Blue (red shade), Cadmium Yellow Pale and Cadmium Red together to create skin tones in the short time I have for each sketch. It’s fun trying to get better though.
