For a change instead of taking my drawing gear up to the Indianapolis Art Center for the Fiday morning open model session I took my oil painting rig. I’ve drawn this model many times but until today I’d never painted him. The first one is the profile top left of this first canvas. That was a 15 minute study. The three quarter view on the same canvas was 25 minutes.
This second canvas was also a 25 minute pose and since I included more of the body the facial detail suffered. But I can use the first profile and go back into it for some restructuring and refinements.
