Art Pearls

My journey in search of pearls through painting and drawing


with 6 comments

This painting is part of the DSFDF challenge that is hosted by the artist Karin Jurick. As suggested by Karin, I did a full figure sketch first as shown below:

Then I proceeded with painting the figure in watercolor. This exercise helped me build confidence and mitigated the lingering doubt in my mind about my figure sketching skills. Obviously I did not strive to build an exact likeness of the person since that was not my goal.
