Life Drawing Tuesday

We hadn't been to life drawing in ages, and both my husband and I were in the mood to go. So I took a break from floral study (even though I didn't do any floral painting, I watched Jean Haines' Watercolor Flower Workshop video, and got some really good ideas!), and spent the even painting the live model at Palo Alto Art Center.

Here are a couple of 5-min drawings done with the Pentel brush pen, and burnt sienna brushed in at the end for interest.

And here is a 20-min painting that I did purely in watercolor. I tried a new combination of colors for the skin color and quite like them - Cad red, Cad yellow, Cobalt Teal!
