God your good!
ten to 15 minutes. MAN, you're great. I really love how you paint the models. Is that watercolor? I can't do that.
Wren.WOW. WOW. WOW. Im glad I had something to do with gettin you to do some watercolor figures. Your right, these are not as "clean" as mine....they are waaaaay more expressive! I really love them. Nice honest, spontanious studies of light on anatomy. The one in the middle is a wonderful composition, even love the abstract shapes in the top right. You trying to keep up with me? SHEEESH, your KILLIN it! Ive got a date with my wife tonight, but after that Im back in the lab! Gonna show you somethin real soon!Thanks for exciting me!Cheers from Vancouver,Jesse
And a technical question if you dont mind:In the middle composition the bg is a lovely wash of what looks like cobalt blue and burnt sienna. You did that wet on wet right? As apposed to a second pass of colour over dry colour?
Can't thank you guys enough for checking out what's been happening lately and being so kind. In doing 15 minute poses - believe me, I had go get a lot of bad ones out of the way before a few nice ones popped out. Jesse, the background washes are a wet on wet mix of cerulean and permanent orange. There are two colors I've been using that have an amazing granulating texture - cerulean and veridian. I've been playing with using these to get abstract, textured backgrounds - a trick I picked up from my mentor - Mr. Reardon. If you haven't checked out his blog lately, you have to see these paintings he's done of Kashmir - they'll make your eyes bleed they're so good.W
Good lord your right. My eyes bled, and my soul pulsated!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH the additions to this post are so beautiful Wren.
These are wonderful. I'm so glad to have come across your work. Thanks so much for posting on my blog and leading me here!
Jesse, I didn't know you memorized the contents of this blog so that you could detect subtle additions - thanks so much for the continued enthusiasm. Colin - I'm glad you find some of the studies get you excited about painting. You do some wicked painting yourself.
