Today was curious in that I had some amazing experiences drawing, but ended up with little on the paper that I like.
After my last attempt, which ended in an over-blended painting (see earlier blogpost), I attempted to restrain my desire to get rid of hard edges. I'm pretty happy with this.
Sure some of the proportions are off, but I'm getting better with color. I barely had to scrub at this one. I love the aspect ratio of this new watercolor pad. I'll have to go back and buy another.
I scrubbed at this one so much that the paper began to dissolve. Nevertheless, I still like this one.
I'm not thrilled about the final results, but the drawing experience was excellent today.
The change was very subtle, but love the results. I added a bit of yellow to the foot to match the flesh of the leg.
Completed another late night painting of my foot. I'm extremely happy with this, however the top of the foot is too pink, so I plan on going back and fixing.
Used watercolors again to draw my hand. There are moments that I like in this painting, but overall I'm not happy with it.
We had two male models, one whose poses were very outstretched and dynamic. Not the greatest drawings today, but still enjoyable nonetheless.
This one turned out much better than the last hand painting. I don't love it, but at least it's a big improvement.
I worked on the hand painting I completed last night. I would add a few lighter spots, but I like it so much better.
