Male Figure Painting

This is from the first session of a two week pose in my Life Painting class. How nice it is to have two weeks instead of part of one class to paint a model. Next week I'll go back in a rework the background to bring it up but cool it down more to bring the figure forward and of course do things like finish the hands etc. We painted direct without using the imprematura we have been doing all semester but we are still using the limited palette we have been using all along. This is on a 16 x 20 canvas in oil.

Whew, looks like a tough pose for the model! But you're off to a great start on the painting, especially up in his shoulders and head. Looking forward to seeing the finish.
