Another in the not-so-comfortable stretching series. 
The beginning of a new painting. I am trying
another sketch as a painting and gessoed
the giant canvas mom found years ago at a
yard sale.

More watercolor sketches

I'm enjoying working in watercolor again; I recently took a quick one day workshop where we worked in one color on a wet background. Since then, I have been practicing monochromatic sketches (mostly in blue) using photos from Smithsonian Magazine and The Figure in Motion figure studies. I am enjoying the way the watercolor moves and drapes over the paper, and the way it adds to the image is, as I read in one watercolor illustration book "seductive."
