Back lit

Acrylic on Paper  14 x 10 ins

Another exploration with interactive acrylic and ‘drawing with a brush’.  Here there was time, about 50 minutes in all, to introduce white with the umber and go beyond a basic wash-in to add a little loose modelling on the back and a touch of detail in the profile.



A3: Charcoal and wash on paper

In this drawing I wanted to stress the strong contrast between her back in bright light and her head, shoulder and arms in shadow.
