Painting at the Drawing Session
Filed under: Open Studio Painting
Posted by: Paul McCall @ 8:49 pm

I decided to paint at the IAC open model session Sunday afternoon.

This was a 15 minute pose.



This was a 50 minute pose in two 25 minute sessions.
I was reminded of the need to have both your palette and your canvas either white or a middle value. My palette is a middle value but I hadn’t the time to stain the canvas pad sheets a middle value so whenever I mixed a value on the palette that I saw in the figure, when I placed it on the white canvas it was much darker! That effect calmed down when I laid in that black around the head and shoulders but it was certainly disconcerting!
