The Robe Reflected

6 Nov

This is an old one of mine, from when I was going through a watercolour period at the weekly life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop. This model has beautiful robes and we often try a pose or two with them on. The reflected figure in the large mirrors formed a composition that I really liked. I used an A3 spiral bound heavyweight watercolour sketchbook.

I never think of myself as a painter; I used the watercolour and brush to draw with the liquid. I didn’t try to do a lot of detail, I used fairly broad brushes to concentrate on colour rather than fine line.
