Another pose painted at my figure drawing group. Again, the 40 minutes flew by. I like the sense of form here, the way the hips are stacked with the hand resting on them.
For these figure sketches, I lay down a wash of paint thinned with odorless mineral spirits (Gamsol) first, then wipe out the form with a paper towel. I then paint shadow to light.
