I felt a lot more “with it” this week at the life drawing session. I even liked my warmup sketches; that’s saying something!
Watercolour on manila paper. 2 x 10 minutes
Watercolour, 20 minutes
Back to the drawing board with this one (above). After the previous one, I felt I needed to loosen up a bit more. I also wanted to try my high contrast technique with a colour other than black. But it morphed into something else. Anyway, it was just for fun.
And then, well this happened. I’m really chuffed with it. You know when you can really picture something in your mind’s eye, and then the physical act of drawing just becomes a process of transferring that mental image on to a medium? For me, it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like. But there we go. Really pleased.
Size is 7.5″ x 11″, on a cream, acid-free watercolour paper, and done with Windsor & Newton watercolours, watercolour pencil, and 4B pencil.
