Proportions, tonal value and colour variation.

Seem to get everything wrong on Saturday but still enjoyed the session. I was running the session and we talked about better positioning of the model and also lighting so hopefully things will be better in the future.

First two 10 minute A2 charcoals.

Long pose with natural lighting (and reflections) I find I'm constantly chasing shadows. I also used a freshly primed canvas which I find difficult to get the paint to stick. Later changes lead to a more consistent approach when compared to the original jigsaw of colours but it's lost a lot of its impact. 24"x18" about 3 hours 30 mintes.

Full dress uniform

Portrait session on Saturday was a little different. Rob the model came in full dress uniform. Difficult to deal with all the black. Not enough time as well. Two hours.

Saturday - deja vu

Same model as Friday for Saturday's session. First two 10s.

Then long pose with inconsistent lighting.
