weekly figure group

Arches CP 300 gsm, 12" x 9".

this week the model was unfamiliar to me, but was excellent -- interesting poses, harmonious lines, rock solid discipline, placid demeanor. got great work off her.

i don't normally do watercolor in the drawing group but thought this back pose would look good.

first laid down the figure in carbon pencil, then tinted the form, then modeled it, then dropped in the background, hair, etc. it was a 20 minute pose.
