Madness (in progress)
On Monday night I came up with the concept for this painting with Lisa in mind. I painted the room in acrylics and set the scene for painting madness. Last night, Lisa modeled for us again. She began with 3 longer poses in which she herself was drawing on a board. The rest of the poses began at 4 minutes and we eventually worked our way down to 30 second poses, which gave me loose interesting figures that I had envisioned. It was such fun challenging everyone to work faster. I didn’t get photos of the other ladies work since they took them home with them.
All of these poses are very familiar to me since Lisa and other models have used them before. If you are familiar with my paintings some of this probably reminds you of my older works. I plan to go into this painting again and work the window and perhaps some the Lisa figures who are painting but not the ones that are paintings. I have to say, this is currently my favorite painting I’ve created.
