The Big Draw day 4 and 5
The young fellow in the Métro, hidden behind a suited man looked like someone from the early 19th Century...a brother of Franz Schubert, perhaps? :)
GIRL MEDITATING IN A FUR CAP
Today's Motto: Perseverance
This is a glimps into my watercolour-studies-experimental book. I am working with several books on colour, in order to understand and experiment with colour because I would like to step into a new dimension with my watercolour paintings. One has to work very fast, with much water, "lay on" pigments on paper in the right moment, keep your brushes and the palette clean. It has to be found out which is the right moment, and this can only be done by practising all the time.
For this study, (on 300 g paper) which is drawn from a metroportrait, I worked with a limited pallette, you can read the list of the colours on the painting, if you click on it. I find the study a bit too heavy and the furr cap is the result of my messing up the girls hair:) ......but all in all it points in the direction where I'd like to go, and I know that I have to persevere in order to get where I want to get...
Have a nice weekend
