Still a life

Something a bit different. Made the most of the midday sun with a still life. The aim was to try to master the satin material. Interesting exercise though apart from the fact that it takes a long time I'm not sure what I learnt. It is all good practice. Three hours, acrylic on 14"x11" canvasboard.

The material was less green than this and more bronze though the sheen was green.

Structure of the head

After having less success than usual in a portrait life session I tried some more practice. These are the better ones though it does niggle me that there are still some fundamental proportional issues.
