She prepares for the day.
When I can manage it, I have a model in my studio for 3 hours. For about half that time a few days ago I worked in acrylics on canvas, after first working in conte.
Excellent model at my studio
Carmen is one of my favorite models. She’s lanky, a ballerina with great stretching poses. As you can see, this had to be quickly done. Sometimes you get the best results when you do not have much time.
Go, Figures started life as a regular modeling session but in acrylics, not the usual way to go. It evolved into this. The background is inspired by František Kupka’s Mme Kupka (1910). He was a Czech artist and she his wife. I saw the painting at the Nieu Gallery in NYC, at a special exhibit that included some of Klimt’s famous paintings.
