|Portrait Sketch, 10x8" watercolor, 18 of 30|
I started by painting the shadow areas rather than focusing on her facial features. It helps to keep the work loose & this wasn't meant to be a likeness. It does resemble her.
I was quite far from the model but I did have a clear view. I get out a card table to spread out my watercolor supplies..
Being able to stretch and practice sketching the human form twice a week is a major benefit to being a member of the Cincinnati Art Club. Our monthly dinner meetings are fun & informative as well. It's a great place to grow your art practice. Click here for membership information. We welcome artists, art lovers and collectors.
I am grateful for the blessings of my life as it is today.
