Today's Life Drawing

Patricia ~ 30 minute pose with Flair pen and Doc Martin Hydrus watercolors
Am pushing through my feeling of awkwardness with the Doc Martin Hydrus watercolors, but still don't feel I have accomplished what I have been hoping for.  I want to be looser, yet, have an economy of strokes and clear and confident applications of color ... not necessarily the "right" colors, but colors that "work."  The pose was Patricia's best of the day.  She is the same model as the one in the cowboy hat in a recent post.  I have to say, she is still not my favorite, and the drawings I have done, are not my favorites either.  I could say it doesn't matter, it does, but there's always next week, and lots of room for improvement.

Dee, I like the way the lines of the color define her muscles and body structure. I also like the placement of her legs and feet... the movement of color and line is beautiful.
You are way too hard on yourself!
