POSING MODELING

TO BEGIN, FIRST TO WRITE ABOUT THE MODEL IS TO TALK ABOUT FLAMENCO MUSIC. IT IS ONE OF THE OLDEST MUSIC GLOBALLY AND IS NAMED “CANTE HONDO.”

STILL POPULAR FOR IT HAS PASSED CENTURIES AND STILL HERE WITH US. FOR IT IS PASSIONATE, TEMPERAMENTAL, ROMANTIC, AND I WILL NOT

FINISH MENTIONED ALL IT’S CHARACTERISTICS. GOOD ENOUGH TO WRITE MANY BOOK

ON THAT DAY SHE CAME DRESSED AS READY TO DANCE. INDEED POSE FOR US FOUR TIMES EVERY MODAY FOR FOUR HOURS. BUT OF COURSE THERE WERE BREAKS.

AS A TICKET OF APPRECIATION, SOME STUDENTS GAVE HER POSING DRAWINGS. INCLUDING MYSELF.

ABOVE IS ONE BEST PIECE ABOUT HER. AND UNDER THE TEACHERS REQUEST TO PAINT IT OVER MASONITE WOOD. IT IS EVEN AND SMOOTH PAINTED WITH AN ACRYLIC BRUSH. USUALLY THESE ARE SOFT IN TEXTURE IN CONTRAST TO THE OIL BRUSHES. IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT CAN NOT ACHIEVED THE SAME EFFECT.

BUT,  THEN AT THE END IS THE ARTIST WHO DECIDES HOW THE FINISH WILL LOOK LIKE.

THE GLOW WITHIN CAME FROM ANOTHER TECHNIQUE APPROACH BASED ON ARTIFICIAL LIGHT. PRESENTLY THAT ADEPTNESS GAVE ME NEW IDEAS FOR  USED  IN MY LANDSCAPES PAINTINGS.

MOREOVER, THE FACE IS THE FOCAL POINT; OBVIOUSLY, THE DRESS IS NOT PAINTED IN DETAILS, ON PURPOSE. STILL NOT EVERYTHING HAD TO BE DETAILED PAINTED.

AT THAT TERM WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS HER FACE UNISON THAT FLOWS  WITH THE REST OF HER BODY.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT HER SUBJECT AND THE PAINTING. YEARS HAVE PASSED, AND IT FEELS AS PAINTED YESTARDAY.

VINE CHACOAL ON PAPER, 1995 SIZE 24″ X 18

PILAR PASCUAL

THE VINE CHARCOAL JUSTIFIES THE SHADE. IT IS KNOW FOR ITS SPONTANEOUS QUALITY. THE FEELING HERE IS OF AN OLD VELVET PRINT OVER AN AGED PAPER.

THIS DRAWING WAS A WARM-UP IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO PAINT IT. SKETCHES ARE THE BEST REFERENCE FOR A THIRD STUDY PAINT IN THE FUTURE. AFTERWARD, HER PORTRAIT IS UNIQUE LIKE THE CANTE HONDO; IT AGES LIKE A WINE IN A BARREL. AND AS THE YEARS PASS BY NOT JUST READY TO DRINK IT BUT READY TO VISUALLY DIGESTED.
