Fighting talk

.. well the model looked like he was fighting himself in the short poses (or would have done if I had used larger paper). Two 10 minute poses in charcoal and charcoal pencil on A2.

Long pose I probably should have started something new half way through as the light had changed so much and I lost a lot of the changes in hue. About three and half hours acrylic on 20"x16".

Portrait session on Saturday. I should have left the painting after one hour (without lightening the shadows). About 1 hour 20 minutes acrylic.

Had another go which is more accurate for the model and also her pose (which did change). About 40 minutes charcoal/chalk.
