Life Drawing: now in color!

This is my first post. I shouldn't let you guys have all the fun... =) I tried life painting digitally for the first time, which allowed me to get some much-needed practice with color and how it relates to value/form.

The first pose was 45 minutes, and the second one about 20 minutes. I used Painter X and my latop/wacom tablet.

As you can see the color temperatures and tonal ranges are quite different between the two, despite being from the same scene. I started with an arbitrary background color for each and focused on judging the relative color values and temperatures. I'm not sure if that's how real painters do it, but at least it doesn't fail the squint test...

Very nice Andrew...I like them. Keep it up! Especially the chest area of the first nailed it and the knee foreshortening.

Good job Andrew. I like the rough strokes on the first one especially! Well done
