Blue Nude Reflected

20 Aug

Pat reflected

Here’s another from the archives, when I went through a watercolour phase at life drawing group. I like to use watercolour in a choppy fashion, more like a gouache. This older model used to be a dancer and has a very lithe body which is so interesting to draw, a bit like Egon Schiele’s models. I used Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens for the linework and Winsor & Newton artist’s half pan watercolours onto a heavy Cotman watercolour paper. It’s important to use the best artist quality materials, cheaper ones will fade. The drawing was done at Swansea Print Workshop which has a large drawing room with mirrors.
