This painting is one that I did from an old drawing while I was watering the lawn at my studio. We can water twice a week and this was my day. Having been away for several days, it was nice to be back - there's no place like studio! I used mostly watercolor sticks with touches of pan watercolors, and a couple of ink lines. It's about 11 x 17" on Yupo. Thanks for stopping by!
I went to the Matisse exhibit at the San Antonio Museum of Art on Friday, then on Saturday, I attended a photogravure printmaking workshop sponsored by the McNay Art Museum. I've been a busy girl. See my August 23rd post.
I am Visual Language Magazine's "Artist of the Day" for August 16th! Thank You VL!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
