The girl with pink hairPosted: February 13, 2013
I was drawing students on my lunchtime break today and I decided to paint this with no pen or pencil lines to start. Straight to paint!! Working this way requires that you look at only the big shapes and that you pare them down to the essentials. And it helps if you can lose some edges. For example, have a look at the way I treated her left arm and hands. One white shape with no lines in between. This is the first page of my 11th watercolour sketchbook, a book that will be used exclusively for working this way. No pencil. No pen. Just painted shapes. I’ll keep you posted.
