Colouring in

This week we took the grisaille from last week and 'coloured them in'

Even using a glaze medium it's difficult to get the right level of colour and transparency,and mixing the right flesh tones in the time is always difficult if you're aiming for some level of realism. Each of these took about 90 minutes in total to produce and probably feel a bit rushed as a result. However, what I should have remembered was that this is a drawing class and instead of regretting the lack of time to work on the pieces, I should embrace it; focus not on the painting but rather try to draw in paint, perhaps be a little freer.
Having said that, there are elements of these that are quite good.
