Thursday’s life drawing of two models

1.5 hour painting of two female nudes by David Meldrum
1.5 hour painting of two female nudes ( 27x50cm )
Venue: The Swedish Academy of Realistic Art, 20130314.

The first attempt at capturing these two pretty female models was discarded after a half an hour. I started again and this time I was able to find my way. I am finding it so hard to succeed when doing a two hour session. I just plan to keep trying, at some stage something must go click in my head! I am happy with this painting, I masked off the red-head in the back ground as she made the centre of focus confusing in the composition. Her red hair was beautiful but too distracting.

  1. Very unusual way of painting these two models,one centered and the other in the upper corner,the mixing of colors are wonderful and the freshness of the painting amazing. All I can say as always congratulations for all your works.

  2. Thanks setxu, I try to find an interesting composition when attempting the longer paintings. I used to work as an Art Director for many years, maybe this is the reason why.
