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.

    I like this very much Rosie – you ARE a painter … or maybe someone who draws with paint …

      Thank you Anna. Someone who draws with paint is probably the best description. I look at this and see a potential screen print

    Funny how we ‘see’ ourselves. I make lots of prints on cloth but rarely think of myself as a printmaker.

      That’s interesting. I guess it’s what we have most affinity with 😀
