I decided to do some watercolour figure studies. My focus was to keep them free and loose, I let the wash of colour and dripping paint speak…try to be less literal on the details.
What I love about these images is that they have that hazy memory feeling. Like you are grasping just a glimpse of a moment. It’s good for me to loosen my style and it’s something I favour with life drawing.. However my colour love can’t be held down for long 🙂
Watercolour is so lovely for figure drawings, it can bring a wash of emotions in its simplicity. Of course you can get loads of detail if you want but I’ve always favoured the primitiveness of keeping it unbound and free.
I promised myself I was going to do more life drawing in 2015 and I am really enjoying it 🙂 expect many more pieces!
But for now I’ll leave you with this:
There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the essence of beauty. – Steve Maraboli
Amen to that!
