The long lost art of figure drawing

Trying out the watercolors with a range of approaches. These were 10’s and 15’s I believe. Was a random lot of sizes and paper types. I taped a bunch of scraps I had lying around onto a big board to use them up. Lots of bad landscape painting on the backs of these :)

  1. I love the combination of the loose, sketchy lines and the watercolor. There’s something about the personality of watercolor. It’s elegant but casual — less precise than oil paint. Maybe that’s why complements the sketchiness.

  2. Hey Andrew –
    yes, I think so – it’s suited to the notation (w/c) – the quick comment. Oil can be handled loosely as well, I suppose, but it’s not so naturally spontaneous working with all the solvents and mediums and prepared grounds and such.

    Thanks for the follow by the way!
