Figurative Life

Created alla prima these explorations of the human form, color and composition are created during a single two hour sitting with a live model who is directed to simply change pose. Each session consists of 2 - five minute poses, 2 - ten minute poses, 2- 15 minute poses and 3 - 20 minute poses, there is no specific direction given to the model except for the time constraints. They are a created intuitively and the variety of poses allows me to pull emotionally from the model and the pose as well as build upon the layers that are created with each new gesture of the fellow vulnerable human being in front of me. - Enjoy!
