Woman In A Ball

4 Aug

Girl in ball small

Some of my blog readers have asked to see more of the series of line and watercolour drawings I did a while back. They were all drawn during life drawing sessions at Swansea Print Workshop into an A3 Cotman watercolour spiral-bound sketchbook. The linework was done with a F.aber Castell Pitt drawing pen and I used artist quality Winsor & Newton half pan watercolours for the colour washes. I used the watercolour quite thick, more like a gouache, in sharp choppy strokes with a stiff square brush.

    This makes me want to run out of my job and go somewhere to paint and draw. 🙂 I really like these.

    That ‘pattern’ background is quite intriguing. I am trying to understand what I am responding to (BTW this is a positive response). I think it is the contrast with the more fluid lines of the body and the two sets of colour contrasts. It is probably too long ago to recall but it would be interesting to know whether these were conscious choices. Anyway it would be an interesting approach to deliberately take in making a painting. I hope this makes some sense.

      Hi Leonie, I tend to work intuitively and the colour contrast and variation in line would not have been deliberate choices. I do a lot of printmaking, which is very process driven, so when I draw I try to be as free as possible 🙂
