This one is from the model session this morning at the Associated Artists in Butler. 14x18inches/watercolor/1.5 hour
Went to a great model session at Double Door Gallery on Monday. Our model was really very good and I wish that I brought a camera so I could really capture her heavy eyelids and faraway look... My pencil sketches were quick, 5 minutes and the watercolors were 20 minutes (5x7) and 40 minutes(10x17). One of my students asked me, "why draw fast"? I think the more you practice the more the process become instinctual, so that you can focus on the detail if the main parts are there. I am sure there are many other reasons. I try not to overthink the process. I draw fast and practice so that I can spend more time painting. But if the drawing is wrong, the painting will be too. Fast and accurate.... I will post some of the sketches from the sessions later today.
