Oil on canvas board. 16x12in. 4 hrs approx. My first time painting a live model from life. I really enjoyed the workshop with PJ Lynch.
About 40 hrs in and Im struggling. Got the face and background reasonably well but that body was punishing trying to get right. A little ambitious I think. Gonna park this painting.
I started off wanting to try a nude portrait so I chose myself as subject as I didnt think anyone else would pose for me. I took a photo whilst doing a yoga headstand and flipped it upside down(or right side up). Then I had notions of painting Christ with me as the model but it ended up as me flying through space being created by the universe.
The end product is Inspired by meditation, Anatta is the realisation of no self.
