War Paint by derekjones War Paint by derekjones
two reasons for doing this study - I am always
fascinated by "small" intimate gestures from
my models - tying up hair, touching their
neck absent mindedly etc - and my model,
after saturday's drawing let me photograph
her while she made up her face - really a
theatrical make up - so I took hundreds of
shots of her doing this....
the other reason is that I think I should be
able to use acrylic in a more painterly way
than I do - almost in the way I use pastels.
anyway - this is a first study....

Very nice work. I especially enjoy your pastels. Not everyone can handle them that well.

And I do like the painterly feel you did with the acrylics. :)

I have tried for years to get my acrylics "painterly"

Indeed, you acrylic work is a very consistent look to your pastels - now I don't know which is better. The pastels have purer more intense color, but the acrylics have a more subtle impressionistic dreamy look - hmmm, well you just have to keep doing both. Barrie

as I get more ancient - and see the lack of light at the end of the tunnel I keep wanting to concentrate on one area - but I have a real "grass is greener" mentality
