Firstly, I must apologise to Christina. She is such an amazing model, and I wish these works could have reflected this better.
I struggle a bit with seasonal affective disorder – and perhaps some remnants of post viral fatigue that hit me hard the last couple of years, but I seem to be doing better this year. Still though, there are some days – especially this time of year – where I feel detached from myself. On those days even drawing seems like a strenuous challenge, both physically and mentally. This was definitely one of the harder days.
So here are some of the warmup skecthes:
25 minutes, pastel and charcoal on cartridge paper.
25 minutes, watercolour and watercolour pencil.
Ink & watercolour, 25 minutes
I’ve added extra build lines with a brush, which I think looks very interesting. It’s not at all what I had in mind, but it’s really growing on me.
