Here is my work from yesterday.
|This photo is my resource for the next watercolor painting. Following are the initial studies.|
|Gesture drawings: I always begin with gesture drawings in order to get a sense of the movement, the motion, the directional forces of the subject.|
|Studies 2: Here I first do a quick massing in gestural strokes, exploring what's happening with the light within the gestural movement. Next I try out a composition, after which I do a notan study. A notan is a study of the light and dark patterns.|
|Studies 3: A closeup trying out the placement of the image along side the notan. This is the composition I've tentatively settled on.|
Have a fun Saturday.
