A Morning Pose, the Second Week




A Morning Pose, the Second Week


This morning “JN” was back for the second week, in the same costume, in the same pose.
Last week I painted her with watercolors. Todays working in acrylics, was more enjoyable.

And the Afternoon Before




And the Afternoon Before


I had backgrounds and a story in mind. As you can see, the pose ended while still defining legs. So she remained in the studio.
Another sketch of “B” even earlier this week, after being atop the vanishing warrior.

Morning and Afternoon



Morning



Afternoon


“B” was the model for two sessions I attended yesterday. These are of a longer pose from each of the sessions.
Change of hairstyle and maybe add clothing, maybe the time of day for her as well as for me, and two different women appear.
Morning: 18”x 24” oil sanguine
Afternoon: 9”x 12” fountain pen, oil sanguine and chalk on toned paper.

Atop a Vanished Warrior




Atop a Vanished Warrior

Surrounded by islands
On an isle of sacrifice  
Waiting to be discovered
Preferring to be alone

Atop a vanished warrior
A trace on the surface
The rest of image
A hidden formation

A sketch of one of the poses “B” provided yesterday. The background was waiting to place her atop a vanished warrior.

Looking Back




Looking Back

Another week begins as I continue work on the story.
“GR” looking back in a session from a couple of weeks ago. He will probably become one of the warriors when I get around to doing graphics.
