This is my first attempt at painting from the live model in 40 years. It was a 3 hour session at the Burlington Art Centre. Working with acrylics, I found this exercise to be a real challenge and just plain fun to do, I hope to keep developing in this area and painting from life. It is easy to get bogged down with using photos as my only form of reference. Working live hopefully provides a more 3d like rendering of the subject as well as a good take on the real like colours.
