Watercolor Figure Painting - Into the Blue

Watercolor Figure PaintingThis is a figure painting that I just finished for my upcoming exhibit at Place des Arts in March.

I have never painted water before and I am quite happy with the way this painting turned out, both the water and the flesh tones. I tried to caputure the peaceful anticipation of being engulfed in water, warm of course ;)

Thanks Heather :) Yes it was painted from a photo. Most of my work is done from photos as they take a long time and I don't think I could get anyone to sit that long unless I paid them a fortune ;)

I do attend life drawing classes at Suite E Life Drawing group weekly. I am so fortunate to have it located so close and it is a really friendly group. I sometimes post my life drawings here as well :)
