Life painting

Yesterday was the penultimate day of life painting and the model, Duck, was a lovely young man who was very easy on the eye!

The challenge of this was how to get the whole composition to work when the figure was taking up a right angled shape leaving a large expanse of nothing. The cloth was hung so that the folds were vertical and so I decided to make marks that were more lively and horizontal to balance the figure.

I feel it is rather classical and not breaking any new ground but I am pleased that it seems to work as an exercise in colour and marks.
