Figure Drawing - Matilde

I tried watercolor again tonight. I think I'm learning a bit.  I think I learned that it's sort of a good idea to lay down the shadow/darkest parts first, so that that part is a bit dry by the time you can wash over it with a lighter color.  At least..for one type of result...  

I put away any pen/pencil for most of the evening, so I wouldn't be tempted to draw lines, but instead pay attention to shapes of light and shadow.  I warmed up to the idea a bit more this time I think.  But for the final, 30 minute pose, I wasn't yet comfortable to do detail work in watercolor, so I did lines first and had time to wash over with color.

These are so good. I have to cheat watercolor with Photoshop brushes. You are the real deal.

I'm so scared of watercolour - these are really beautiful and show so much control!
