Arjun – Catherine Underpainting

Hi Matt. An underpainting, just like last time.

It’s my first time painting a long duration nude figure. The anatomy was a bit overwhelming and I learned a lot trying to see past it. I tried to see in a calculated way in individual sections of bodyparts and getting the likeness little by little.

I want to make her face and hips the focal points.

If I had to ask a question, my main one would be, how do you draw the figure? If you use blind contour, isn’t that a huge risk with the proportions? If you had all the time and resources in the world, what would be a sure shot solution to drawing the figure with good proportions?

Also, could you prescribe a course for me before we jump into the coaching critique next week?
