Golden Open Acrylic Figure Studies
12x16 GO Acrylics on canvas board.
This model is a an attractive girl, but has a slightly large boxy nose and a small mouth, petite body. In this case the cartoonist in me came out and exaggerated those features. Nose bigger, mouth smaller. I almost reduced the nose, but like the drawing and didn't want to mess with it. I think I hurt the models feelings as she didn't comment on it like she was with everyone else's...
I see some hard edges (the main downside of Acrylic), but I'm basically happy with this despite that I was distracted in class by a new smaller room making the fellow students quirks more distracting. There is one guy who likes squeaky chairs, rummaging around his equipment, loud pallet knife work, talking to the model, directing the model. He does this over a four hour period just enough to make you crazy, but not enough to really be totally obvious. Next week I'll try an I- pod or a new place.
