I've joined an evening life drawing class. Self-directed = No teacher. These are my " first" watercolour sketches(A3).
"The quicker, the better," I feel.
"Dignity(15 minutes, A3)"
Before sketching, I had a chat with a model. It gave me his image. In the class, I felt "high" = wanted to make a big work(*if I feel small, I can only make a small work). I used 3 A3 papers to make this work. A bit hectic to keep them on a small board! But fun!
"Life Experience, (30 minutes)"
Do you love life drawing? I do. Oh, long time ago, when I looked at a model's body, it moved me so much. Both, a male and a female, how beautiful and devine! So precious. I thanked for having the human body. The feeling is still the same now.
"Strength(15 minutes, A3)" value study
These sketches are a starting point. I want to explore watercolour for portraits and illustrations. The local colours bore me in portraits. Go one more step further technically and mentally to grow. Take a risk and do experiments.
So...I'm exploring washes to apply them more to portraits and illustrations. Wrap makes this texture.Quite an easy procedure.
1) put colour on paper
2) put a wrap & play around with fingers = make texture
3) leave it till gets dry
But controling this is not easy. At 2), you can control some. I'm challenging it.
Have a wonderful week. The class will restart after an Easter holiday.
Friends, Happy Painting!! Let's make lots of messes!
