I adore that blue!Can you say how many hues of marker you use? It looks like many, but it may be the way you layer and wash that makes it seem so.
The highlights give the illusion of the skin glistening...either from light reflection or a sheen of sweat!!!
This nude is glowing. Excellent coupling of primaries, but then your restraint with color produces incredible drawings.
Thanks, all.Katherine, this is just one blue marker, one ochre marker. The color mixing is all on the paper--and most of the fun of making the drawing. The most intense blues are heavily applied and barely wet, if that.
This is really great, wonderful how you did the shapes of the body, wow!
The vibrant colors feel really fresh, and with her torso turned straight at us, there's a really nice energy here.I was going to say it's a "bold" feeling, but it's more innocent than "bold" might imply. "Fresh" and "energy" are the best I can do for now. I like this one a lot.
Such a solidness to the midsection. I have no idea how you created that effect but nonetheless, it's there. Well done.
It's wonderful to get these effects with spare use of materials, Jean. Thanks for sharing that.
Thanks, all.And, my pleasure, Katherine.
