A few images from life drawing session on Sept 4. Burnt Sienna heavily thinned for background.
Top layer painted during session was a mix of Burnt Sienna and Titanium White Artisan WSO paint.
Paper canvas sheets.

Twenty minute sketch, first roughed in pencil. I've slipped the paper to the cardboard backer to allow it to sit flat for the snapshot.

In the one with the woman bent forward, it just feels like her skin is glistening with perspiration. Both are very well done.

Thanks for the compliments, Judy. I was certainly perspiring, perhaps I was 'projecting' that. (It WAS a warm humid night actually)

Good Job Alan,… I like the first one most. The second one seems too heavily censored so can't make much out of it… Smile

Thanks Faisal. Some poses lend themselves more to general visibility than others. Oh well, that's the deal, and I am grateful to have this forum in which to share the sketches.

Really nice, Alan. Your skin tones are always so right on.

Thanks Jan. I am always trying to simplify the approach, especially in these quick paintings. I apply the thinned background, and onsite at the session, I premix a couple of midtones, so I can paint faster when the 'bell rings'. This way, I can quickly block in white, dark, and maybe 2 midtones, before I need to blend edges and mix intermediate tones. All about being fast. otherwise I finish the session and the sketch is missing a limb or head, ha ha
