Watercolor and w/c crayon
More quick sketches from the Bay Area Model’s Guild Marathon last weekend. In these 5-10 minute sketches I painted some watercolor wetly onto the surface to get started, then drew into it with w/c crayons.
Here, a second little swipe of color to define the shorts, but taking care not to overdo. . .which is my tendency.
Watercolor wash, Derwent dark wash pencil
The model is taking her clothes off over her head. I left the ambiguity there, but had to paint in the red bra, which she was wearing. She also had black and white striped stockings!
And one last sketch (below), I started with the two slashes of watercolor, with some loose idea about joining the two figures, then sketched them in with my Uni-ball pen. The hot slash of color across the woman could refer to her reaction to him or possibly how he sees her! Definitely some connection here!
