Mixed media nudes

I like how watercolour pigments give a gentle wash to nudes however sometimes a crisp edge helps define the shape, these are watercolours with charcoal for definition.

Shapes, sizes and Age

One of the attractions of life drawing is the variation of models that offer to pose for the group, all sizes, shapes and age make for a new venue on a regular basis. This model was exceptionally tall and slender and another opportunity to portray the human figure. The first 2 are the same pose just different media and technique.

Life Drawing

Most of my life drawings are pencil or charcoal but when I see a pose that really catches me I pull out the watercolours and get the image down in 20 minutes. It’s fast and loose, 20 minutes isn’t much but I think it creates some of the best work I produce.
