I have been working on my nude watercolor paintings since my the last time I shared a few of my first attempts. This is exciting for me because I am feeling some real connections with this style and the subjects.
I want to share two small paintings I completed that are of the same pose, but slightly different characteristics. This first piece came out so well that I wanted to try it again, thus the second attempt. Notice on the first one that there are quite a number of white spaces with no paint, and a light color yellow in many other parts.
This is the second run at the same pose, with less white space and darker colors in general. I also tried to fill up the paper a bit more by making the figure larger.
I think they are both successful and can't decide which I like more. I am interested to see if you feel the same as I do, or are drawn to one more than the other. Let me know what you think!
Also, I have been working a lot on the new series you will see at Dirksen Dabbles called P[art]nership. The first post will be up on January 4th and it is going to be great!
