Using Form as Framework
July 16, 2015 § 2 Comments
This is a watercolor of my Mother holding my sister, Karlin. My Mother’s form was not completed with detail, but instead was used a stabilizing and supporting element surrounding the baby. Notice how the arms and legs of the mother leads you into the area of focus; the child.
Dr. Mary – What an interesting work Is it gouache? The child really comes to life. Well done!-
So good to hear from you, Marian and your kind remarks!! It is watercolor, however, I use dry brush to work in the details. Kind of approaching watercolor as drawing in the various stages of washes. Hope all is well with you!!
