Big C says:

Hi Clive,you said it normally takes you a couple of hours, but you didn't drink any Welsh Brew tea doing this! ??

Believe says:

I love your very decent advice that all young people should hear about having your husband or wife to pose. 🙂 We need to instill better values and modesty in this generation.

RowanTree says:

Back in my Rugby days, when I had a better physique than I do now, I used to pose for a local art society, in turn I used to paint when others posed. Really helped me as an artist.

Rose Ryan says:

This would be a wonderful challenge to do. While I've done faces, I haven't tackled the human figure, except in a couple of drawings. This is a start for a beginner, but we know that it takes a while to master the proportions and skin tone and shading. This is a lovely tutorial to get started with and then it's up to each of us to develop our skills to carry the painting to the next level. Thanks so much for the tutorial.

D. Saunders says:

To fit the entire sketch on the canvas, you compressed the torso. her buttocks should have been further down, or the figure rendered a little smaller. Otherwise, a good example of mixing and blending, rendering shape, lights, and darks. And, pleasant company while I struggle in front of my own easel! Thanks, Clive!

Mary Jenkins says:

Love how you work the form first with simple colors.
