22x30 Watercolor, Gouache
First day in workshop with Kate Worm. It's all about the figure in watercolor & gouache. Maybe I should state now that I'm an oil painter! I have taken from Kate before (about 8 yrs ago) and she is a fantastic teacher. I walked away so inspired & seeing new possibilities opening up in my oils. This piece started with a wash of Payne's Grey. Then I drew with an EYEDROPPER! Yes, an eyedropper filled with watercolor...talk about freeing...WOW! The next step was placing the lights (in gouache) with a brayer, fine tuning the figure a bit in charcoal & then dropping warmth into a few areas. Below I have included the eyedropper drawing so you can see the marks it makes along with one of Kate's beautiful pieces. Hopefully, we play with color tomorrow. Exhausted, exhilarated & enthralled...Good Night!
