End of Term

My water colour classes for this term came to an end today. I really enjoyed painting the human figure. Next term we will be stomping around all over London doing some urban landscapes. I am looking forward to that but I do hope that the weather will be kind to us in April when my classes start again.
So this is what I did today. I like the first painting better than the second one. With the second one I think I started rather low on the paper and ended up squashing the bottom half a bit. But that particular pose was not an easy one to do. I must applaud the model here as she gave us some really beautiful poses to work with. This was an earlier painting where we had to do hands and feet and the same in skeleton form. Painting hands and feet in water colour is the hardest. That hand was corrected by my teacher and now it looks like a hand but when I did it ,you would't have recognised it lol! The feet came out ok because it was the model's but tried doing my own feet and I failed miserably.

  8. I love seeing your class work, Shashi! You are coming along so very well, and so quickly, too! Oh my, the skeletal drawings took me back to my drawing classes. Our instructor was SO thrilled to announce that the department had bought him a full sized skeleton and our next assignment was to draw the whole thing! I almost died!

  9. Shashi,
    Your watercolors are very good. Your sense of color is excellent andso is your expression of feeling. That is very hard to paint but I can see this in your painting. Way to go!!!
