Figure class paintings

So glad to be back at figure class after it has been on break for a few weeks.  Been able to tweak my workflow in Painter and am getting more comfortable with it.  Most of the warm up sketches aren’t much to look at but I included a couple of the better looking ones – these are just 2-5 minute poses.  Then I’ve got 3 of the 4 longer pose paintings.  The last painting was about a 45 minute pose and so I took a bit of creative license with it.  Had a great time, good atmosphere tonight which helps the creativity.

Below is a comparison from 3 classes ago, same model, similar pose but it was an hour pose.  I think the new painting from tonight (with the yellow “wings”) looks much more natural and appealing.  The previous painting has better contrast but suffers from a lot of other bad technique I think.
