Open Figure Studio

Another Monday at open figure painting at The Portsmouth Arts Guild. The time flies by, I want to get the drawing down first,used burnt sienna,ultramarine,cad yellow,and Indian red for the palette,trying to simplify the shapes. Thinking always about the shape,not the thigh! Or whatever. Challenged by the foreshortening of that right arm!


  1. I think the foreshortening is done very well, as is the rest of the drawing on this figure.

  2. Thanks, the figure is such a challenge! I'm making an effort to paint from life as much as I can this year,particularly studying the model.
