First we did two ten minute drawings to warm up. I wouldn't normally try for the whole thing in such a short time, especially with two models! I think I caught the essence, although accuracy suffered a lot.
Next was two twenty minute poses, and going to the other extreme I concentrated on Geralds' head!
For the rest of the day, this pose was set. I was very pleased with this. Usually we have two models and they are separated most of the time, or posed together in a very unlikely way. This I thought could be any couple snuggled up together, watching TV.
I realised afterwards that after two hours I was fiddling with the painting and spoiling what I had done. Next time, which will be the last Saturday in January, I shall try to do two small oils. I really don't know why I didn't think to change position and do another on Saturday.
