Seated Woman In Primary Colors

Drawn this morning, from life.

Ink and water soluble markers on Yupo, about 13"x20".

The model this morning came in on crutches.  She has badly sprained her right ankle and isn't able to drive--very important in this car-and-bicycle-reliant city.

Luckily, she was able to get a ride to the studio.

This was the first of a couple of one-hour poses.

  2. Bright! A contrast between the colors and her pose? Interesting.

  3. I'm mad for that shade of cerulean blue (is it?) leading to that grand shade of yellow and then in between is her leaden expression.

  6. I like this one. A change for you, imho. The only change I would have made wood've been to replace the blue with something else. Otherwise, the cardinal & gold colours are perfect!

  8. Thanks, all.

    I liked the yupo paper so much, from my first experience with it, that I bought another two sheets. This drawing is on about half of one of those sheets.
