Figures

I won't bore you with the house and computer demise problems that we've experienced over the last month. Let's move to a more pleasant subject of art! Figure drawing sessions have again started and this piece really has made me feel that I'm making progress. It's done with pastel pencils.



I dropped in for a watercolor class as I wanted to learn the instructors technique for painting and outline. First she takes a pencil and meanders down the page. Then she ponders and pulls out the image. This is what I produced.


It's a silly piece, but was so much fun to create. I see a future for this technique as it combines watercolor and zentangles.

Hi Sandra, Both pieces are beautifully done. I don't think your watercolour is silly at all. It reminds me of the bright mexican folk painting, I Love it

I enjoyed catching up with your wonderful pen and ink drawings. This pastel pencil sketch is just fantastic! I can see how your ink practice has paid off!
