It was great to be back with the Tuesday night figure drawing group this week in Oakland. It’s a closed group, but sometimes a regular member can’t make it so I get to accept Scott’s invite. I’ve been experimenting with figure painting — different papers, watercolor sketchbooks, paints, and watercolor pencils. Mostly with dreadful results, but the exercises are useful. It’s a contrast, there — my loosey-goosey, quick watercolor style in a group of brilliant, traditional portrait artists who use oils. Our styles clash, but we laugh a lot. None of those guys take themselves too seriously, which is lovely.
5.5″ x 8.5″ watercolor and watercolor pencil on paper = $60
