Experimental Life Study in Watercolour

Life Study (Watercolour)

Life Study (Watercolour)

Camelot’s Gypsy Sketch Club was postponed last night due to the incredible storms we’ve had over the last couple of days around Sydney… so I considered posting one of last week’s pieces instead, as I’d originally promised.

But then I happened to spend half an hour yesterday afternoon at my drawing board, with a paint brush in hand, looking at said sketch, and somehow this life study in watercolour appeared. It’s amazing what you can do with just three colours: Indian Yellow, Phthalo Blue and Perylene Maroon.

I’m very pleased with it… until a few weeks ago I was living my self made, lifelong story that I can’t ‘do’ figures, but I’m beginning to realise I had better stop saying that to myself! Just how much do we limit ourselves with the made up beliefs we hang on to? …and I wonder if can work on not doing portraits next 😛 .
