Live portrait painting

I tried my hand at live portrait painting last week. It was very challenging as I am not used to painting a long pose. The model wasn’t very happy, honestly! But he did have two eyes. I seem to have lost one of his eyeballs. Sorry about that Mr. Model!
Thank you Farigh Ghaderi Art Studio! 🙂

The sailing season begins soon.

Yeap, they say, paint what you love. I’m really looking forward to the summer season. I want to camp and sail. To paint plein air from morning till night. To be in the archipelago. To enjoy the constant light.

I am painting a lot of nudes at the moment

Why a sudden interest in painting nudes David? I guess it’s because it’s where I’m at at the moment. I am running my life drawing classes and I feel inspired because it is now and in the present. Landscapes have to wait, it’s too cold outside and I find little inspiration from my reference photos. I would love to paint outdoors even when it’s minus degrees but I’m not 100% fit so it’s not a good idea right now, the long winters here don’t agree with me. So it’s nudes at the moment. I hope you don’t mind.

This watercolour is disturbing

I am the first to admit, I made her too skinny. I like the pose and the lighting though. I should try again.

This is for those of you who enjoy life drawing, here is my current sketchbook. I normally just take photos of my work but this time I thought I’d present my drawings on video with a little voice over.
Have a nice weekend!
