My blog is quiet at the moment... I always knew it would be like this in March as I have a lot of workshops booked and so have had a lot of preparation to complete especially for the all day beginners session at Mazart Studio on Friday.
In the meantime this is a little study I have had on my "to do" list. I seem to like back views and this is such a lovely image, taken from a photo by Max Hemingway. I wanted to keep a fairly limited palette and this is just UB, Burnt Sienna and Alizarin Crimson. Not such a loose watercolour....... I did draw this as I wanted to make sure the figures were in the right proportions and I have made use of the "halo" effect which helps highlight around the figures and accentuates the light and dark. I don't know if the bg works on this... I wonder whether they need to be going somewhere instead of into a big black hole of darkness!!! Will leave you to decide!!
