From Left to Right:
Phase 1: Initial drawing, proportions, grisaille, and block-in of skin tones and prop (Greek column).
Phase 2: Block-in the values of the left side background, refine shadow behind figure, suggest the shadow and lights on the Greek column, and further refine the figure skin tones and head values.
Open Studio, run by my friend and Studio Incamminati student artist Farley Craig, is a 3-hour figure study course run by the school every Sunday from 1-4 pm. Students pay $10 per session or you can buy a cheaper punch card for 10 sessions.
On one side of the studio is a model set up for a one day. On the other, the pose lasts over three consecutive sessions. I have chosen to do the three session side and have posted the 1st and 2nd days progress to the left.
