More quick sketches in my small teNeues sketchbook, with a black watercolor pencil and a waterbrush.
The statue of a woman is made of stone, and this sketch took about 10 minutes. The second is a statue of Ivan Zajc cast in bronze, it took around 5 minutes and doesn't look very good because I was sitting far away and my eyesight is terrible.
Today's nude sketches from photo reference. On the left digital sketch in Photoshop that I gave up on after realizing how off some things were, and on the right a pencil sketch that went a little better.
Finally finished! :) I'm pretty much satisfied, though I'm not sure I'll use watercolor in this exact manner again.
- Pencil sketch
- Pen & ink line-art
- Light ink wash on the skin, painted wings and exposed flesh in watercolor (Ivory black and Crimson).
- Painted the background in several layers of watercolor (Ultramarine, Pthalo green, Raw umber).
- More layers of Ultramarine on the background.
- Washes of Burnt sienna on the skin and hair, roughing in the net with Chinese white and Ivory black watercolor.
- More shadows on the skin with Ivory black, a light wash of Raw umber + Quinacridone Magenta. Added the veins on wings with Ivory black, and all the detailing on the net with Titanium white acrylic paint.
Watercolor, ink and acrylic on 35x50cm watercolor paper. I don't know how many hours, but only the last step took 6 hours, so you do the math.

I have neglected it a bit, and still I'm not done, but it's 2 A.M... *yawn*
I don't know what to do with the skin, if anything. Skin tones done with diluted acrylic on Animus look so much better.

I did some 1-minute gesture sketches using the Figure Drawing Training Tool, and another one that took maybe 5 minutes. The nude in grayscale was done some time ago but I forgot to post it here.
And these are some face sketches I did in a pub today after 3 beers, tee hee :P
