6 months babies

Little babies are great models there are not moving a lot like older kids
2 pages from my sketchbook, done from life with a cute 6 months baby (not mine)
Last picture is a drawing I've done after a  picture of my son when he was 6 months. I used charcoal over the "chiné collé" monotype technique

Live model session

3h hours open live model session
50x65 oil on canvas paper
Until now I only got the opportunity for 20mn sketches maximum, using charcoal. I was longing for having more time. This is my first try. The pose was beautiful ant the model very inspiring, with a kind of nice graphic haircut

Harold speed " on painting a head"

Different stages following Harold Speed instructions and black and white pictures from "oil painting techniques and materials" I found it was  a great lesson for mixing fleshtones from a limited earth palette.Last steps not done...I guess this one will never be finished. But I think  I'll try it again
