Two small sunrise studies recently finished. This is the latest in a series of outdoor paintings of the sunrise viewed from Tayport as the sun’s position during sunrise still keeps moving northwards.

All The Young Nudes life-drawing-club-in-a-pub. Week 4
2 life drawings from Dundee Art Society’s Monday meeting.

Good luck folks and all the best for the opening!
The 3rd Week of All the Young Nudes life drawing classes in Dundee
The second week of All the Young Nudes life drawing in Dundee A couple of the 2 minute warm up sketches done at the start of the session. 10-15 minutes of doing this and then the poses become progressively longer.

Painting the sunrise without the sun
Shouldn’t be long now to finish this one. It’s progressing slowly (but at least steadily!) with a gradual working out of the shapes and shadows within the light.
