This pose captures mass with just a few ink 
lines to hold in the corners. I am looking for the kind of 
sparseness a haiku poem has, aiming for only the essential.


9x12 inch watercolour & ink on rag

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

At the beginning of each session with a live model the 
first half of the evening starts out with one minute poses, 
then five minutes, then ten minute poses. There is a 
break and then two longer poses round out the night.  
This watercolour is of a one minute pose where 
the aim is to capture the gesture of the model.

A very  loose and messy 9x12 inch figure study!

Hello all!
I have been off line for a while due to a family illness.  Hope this post finds you are all well and ready to enjoy the spring time weather.  
A local group here has a model come in every week, and I have been using the opportunity to practice being as brief as possible in the studies, using watercolour and pen.
I hope you enjoy the new posts.
Best regards.
