This block-in is from Monday's figure class. We all had our work cut out for us, because the pose was challenging.....there was a lot of unusual shapes to consider. Next week we're supposed to continue on the same painting.

Block-in, Celeste Bergin, Figure, oil on 18x24 canvas panel

I love how you are always learning, Celeste. One of my biggest joys in life. This is looking good and I can't wait to see it finished!

Well, I'd say you've blocked her in beautifully. I look forward to seeing how she progresses next week.

I must say with all the red splashed around her I thought one of Dexter's nemeses must have paid her a visit. :-)

Eso tiene el hacer desnudos en vivo y esa es su gracias también.
Espectacular tu trabajo. La posición era particularmente difícil, creo, y tú has desarrollado tu pintura y sorteado la dificultad de manera magistral.

Te felicito, Celeste.

Felicidades siempre!

She is beautiful, the pose does look complicated. I especially like the dark and light

Nice job, Celeste! I like the massed in dark and light shapes.

So much of the "unfinishedness" of this appeals to me... the red/orange slash, the penumbras... and don't touch the pillow. It's crispness slays me.
