Paintings based on quick sketches done during a life drawing session. The first with the model on her knees is a 5 minute sketch. The second is 10 minutes.
Great exercises to create volume with the Zorn palette. I’m thinking cylinder. Forming the cylinder with half-tones near the edges to lighter values. Again I established the light and shadow patterns in the painting. On my palette I create two piles for the light and shadow. The main color is the skin color of yellow ochre and cadmium red. White is added for light areas and black is added for shadows. If I wanted a more yellowish skin tone, I add more yellows; more reds around the cheeks, then a touch more red.
I don’t how long I will continue working with the Zorn palette. But it does help to work with a restricted palette.
