Portrait and Figure Studio...April 21













We warm up with five minute poses. Watercolor sketches on 140 weight watercolor paper...5x7 inches



Watercolor sketch painted in one hour on Fredrix watercolor canvas.. For these longer poses, the model sits for a half hour and then takes a fifteen minute break. Our models are usually not professional models but people one of us knows who are willing to sit for us. For some people, one sitting is enough but others are willing to come back and pose again. It is very hard to hold a pose for a half hour stretch.
