Figure drawing sessions... (12)





I used watercolor for this session of figure drawing and here are some of them... It was tough as the poses were short. I had to speed up. I tried to hang on to the quick changes, so I ended up painting on several drawings at the same time. Finishing the first, letting others dry a little to be able to ad color. I force myself to stay focused in conditions like that, and usually I isolate myself listening to music...

These are great Helen. I like the spontaneous results of watercolor, very expressive.

J'ai un peu peur de me répéter, par rapport à la dernière aquarelle que vous avez montrée... Alors je résume : c'est beau, fort et très inspirant !

Helen, these watercolor sketches are amazing...especially given they were short poses. Mine turn to mud, yours are delicate yet confident.
