Painting: Figure Painting

In Painting we've been studying the proportion of the human figure by painting the skeleton from different angles and distances so we will now progress to Figure Painting.  We'll take turns posing for quick studies and paint them in our sketchbooks.  We'll do a number each day but the best 5 will be graded so you have some freedom to experiment and make mistakes while you work.  The focus of these studies is more on getting the proportions right than the likeness of the model so while every detail isn't necessary do be sure to attempt details like facial expressions, hands and feet which are more difficult.  Below is an example I did in class last year on Halloween.
