Hi Lesley, nice to see your work again. You've got a great mix of skin tones in this study.

Love this Lesley. Sparing with the brushstrokes, great skin tones. Jealous!

Thanks Val and Marjorie :)

Beautiful work, Lesley.

Thanks Cesare, the original is just 16 x 14 cms so it's a looking a little large on my computer. Glad you like it :)

Great portrait Leslie, good marks and colours x

Love this, Lesley, very interesting work. Perhaps I need to try your idea in my life group! I'm always covered in charcoal, too!

Thanks Gudrun :) Thanks Thalia, it's a bit heavier to carry the oils but a lot less messy.

You want to bet on that??? lol. Our poses are very short, so don't know if I'd get the mixes done in time...maybe I'll try pastels. Love yours anyway!!

Agreed Thalia, oils might be difficult to mix for the 1-10 min warm ups. Pastels- a great idea.

Hang on Studio Wall

I've started taking my paints and pochard box to life drawing, to help me speed up for plein air painting. Instead of my usual tonal drawing in charcoal, I'm enjoying learning about skin tones,

I love to paint water, with boats, buildings or simply the water in oils. I'm a regular at life drawing sessions where I usually get covered in charcoal!
