Project 2: Life Drawing – Final Painting

So here is the final painting, the culmination of the Life Drawing project.

I am fairly happy with it. I was planning to make it a ‘proper’ picture with shading, shadows and depth but felt it might work better as more of a ‘pop art’ Lichtenstein/ Opie sort of effort, not least as I am still finding my way with oil on canvas. Also I was running out of time so some pragmatism was needed. I am a lot happier with the three figures to the right than the one on the left; her legs look like they are hanging in mid air. So is it modern art or does it just look like fuzzy felt? You decide..

Finally here is a comparison between the first stage and the second if you want to spot the difference. Mostly around making the figures less chubby and brighter colours once I had decided to go down more of a primary route:
