kortney

Watercolor on Arches CP 300 gsm, 14" x 10".

this is the life drawing i did of kortney at the end of our session, carbon pencil on watercolor block.

the background is cobalt teal scalloped with green gold (copper azomethine). the flesh is burnt sienna tinted with quinacridone magenta, lips perylene maroon. the eyes are green and brown with violet irises. hair is ivory black.

i kept the coloring simple and schematic as the drawing was loose. there is a kind of androgynous classical strength about her head that i wanted to represent in an austere way.

I enjoyed my visit through some of your blog. Great work you are doing. Love the style you do these in. I'll have to bookmark you and check back when I have more time.
