Watercolor Practice- Nude Figure


4 1/4" x 8 1/4" watercolor study of a woman picking apples painted from my imagination. The most obvious miscalculation is the length of the calf/leg is too short or perhaps it is the thigh area that is too long?? In any case, this was fun picking colors, trying to round the form, and think about shapes and dimensions.

Ann, this is really pretty!

she is a bit imperfect--but therein is her charm. She's pretty close and I love that you did it from memory.

I love this too, Ann, being rather partial to watercolor. Maybe she's heavier on the bottom due to an abundance of apple pies. :P

Micah, thank you. :)

Celeste, thank goodness for imperfections, eh. :D It was fun just practicing a figure not to mention those tree leafs.

Connie, too funny. :D Wouldn't mind a piece of that apple pie myself.

Mark, enjoyed your website.

Nora, glad you like the palette. Tried to keep it to a minimum of colors. :)
