Painting the figure in watercolor is tricky. Watercolors don’t have the three-dimensionality of oils or acrylics, so it’s harder to build up the “meat” of a person in a painting. Sometimes it’s best to go for a looser, more abstract style.
I almost scrapped this painting. I tried to aim for a realistic style, and the paper didn’t hold up as well to scrubbing and lifting as I thought it would. Regardless, I saved this painting using the (only sometimes reliable) “fuck it” approach.

I’ve been overwhelmed with work the past few weeks, and it doesn’t look like it will be easing up anytime soon. My drawing class requires a lot of time in the studio, and sometimes I feel like I’m wasting my time when I should be working on a paper.
Fortunately, we’ve begun to do some figure drawing, which is very therapeutic for me. I had forgotten how beautiful women’s bodies are. The first class that we worked with our model, I spent the whole time aching.
