An artist inspired by the look and feel of the naked body
Saturday, 5 November 2011
Watercolour is the perfect medium for nude pictures. One of the delights of skin is the flowing variation of colour that sweeps around the body. I find this can be easily matched with a flowing, varying wash. Leaving behind some paper to convey the light catching on all the lovely forms and using a bit of soft-edging here and there, captures the naked body perfectly. With all my framed pictures ready to hang I can once more simply enjoy the process of drawing and let the results look after themselves. This is another little gem that I've added to my hand-made watercolour pad.
