"S" Standing





“S” Standing
This was the pose he provided this morning for the session with the Independent Painters Group. I had a bit of time left at the end of the session to do the smaller ink sketch too. I’m not sure why he looks more relaxed in one than the other.
1st: 18”x 24” watercolor on 140# cold press
2nd: 9”x 12” ballpoint pen on toned grey paper

  1. Wow now that's a man preferred the coloured version, he looks more fierce somehow, well done A.

  2. Yes...what an amazing difference the colours make.
    I see what you mean, too, about the change of expression.
    He does appear rather nervous in the bottom one, whereas in the top he is full of confidence...must be the infusion of all that wonderful colour!
    Brilliant work! :)

    1. I was sitting down for the sketch, with the pad on my knee looking up a little. For the painting I was standing at an easel. Maybe the vantage point made the difference?
      Thank you
