Today we were drawing/painting Linde in one pose. It was a private session and there was no time limit. So I focused first on getting the proportions right with pencil and then carefully added some watercolor and lines with watercolor pencil. Don’t think it’s finished yet, will see….
And the next sketch I forgot to post last Sunday. It’s on thick grey colored paper, which is also useable for paint. Will use that to experiment a little during the holidays.
Today we had a beautiful model! She is the lead singer of a ten man band (soul/jazz style from ’63 to the ‘70s). in her repertoire there are songs of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Whitney Houston, Ella … etc. I just heard a few songs on Youtube and I’m blown away. What an artist! We were very lucky to have her.
Yesterday we were painting en plein air. It’s a nice location: country estate Schaep en Burgh. I had gouache paint with me and some watercolor pencils. The building is in reality out of sight, but I thought it was nicer to place it here, instead of more trees.
