Rusty Life Drawing

 I haven't done any life drawing since March and with a one day workshop coming up on Saturday, I thought I would get my watercolours and gouache out and do a little exercise!

The sketch on the left is done is gouache, not a medium I have used often.
The sketch on the right is done in watercolour - it was done first and I can see how hesitant I was with the strokes, compared to the second one.

The gouache didn't feel nearly so good to apply and is a wee bit too yellow in the mix. I could feel myself warming to it but will try a bigger brush and bigger sheet of paper later.

So looking forward to Saturday........using the new easels we worked hard to buy, for the first time!!!
