I prepare the surface before I go to the model session, then paint on it letting the papers define the figure. Draw carefully, value is always a problem. Probably needs more work. Always looks different on blog, probably my poor photography.
This is a drawing I did at the Watercolor Society last Wednesday. I took the sketch, which was on sketch paper and tore it up, then reglued down in an attempt to get more expression. I am still working on this but like the stance.
I did a 2 day workshop in Bellville, Texas at Holland Street Gallery. The gallery is on the city square in Bellville and is like the social center of the town. We had every sq. ft. of that gallery classroom full, and we had a great time. There was alot of great art produced, as well as alot of good conversation. Will go back next year for sure.
