KBLD #1.2

This is the finished piece I'd mentioned and promised to post from previously.. This was done all at once except for a last wash, which I did at home, in attempting to stabilize the tones and general composition. 

Life drawing with watercolour!!

Kalk Bay Life Drawing #2

Below are my last life drawings, from Tuesday past. The model is Andrew. I did a series of drawings trying different mediums: charcoal, sanguine sticks and pencils, pastel on layout paper and different boards of which some were provided. Whilst scrambling around trying to keep up with the time, not a good way to try my hand at these but anyway.. I enjoyed myself more in the end, for the 3 long (half hour) poses. The warm ups were good too I guess! Important lessons all round, most important thing too..
