Watercolor Figure Studies

Monday night Long-Pose figure sessions at Panza Gallery are the best. They are three-hours long with model breaks every 20 minutes or so. Having a model who can get back into the same pose after each break and hold it for the whole session makes all the difference in the world when you are working in watercolor. 

Below are two watercolor studies from the last two weeks. The top image is painted in Burnt umber over a light pencil drawing. The bottom is Burnt umber and Ultramarine blue over a light wash of Cerulean blue and pencil drawing.
