Life Drawings from August 8

As with last week’s life drawings, I again used ballpoint pen but on the longer poses, I added some watercolor washes to give a little more interest. Unfortunately, the drawings with watercolor were done on paper not really meant to be painted on. Normally on watercolor paper you have some time to rework the application of the washes but in this case, the paper just soaks up the liquid and you can’t really do much to change what you first put down. But it was still fun to add the color and I think the drawings may offer a little more interest to some viewers than just the pen and ink.

Short 5 minute poses

Longer 25 minute poses
