Well they call it Concentrated water color ( USA spelling Grrr ) But it works more like ink. I have had favourite colours like Slate blue and Tobacco brown for years. The colours are so vivid and in your face. Took a bottle of Pumpkin to life drawing...
Initially a bit of a mess, but then it calmed down and I got some actually drawing done with it. Was using the pipette to draw with so I could control ( sort of ) the amount of ink coming out.
Finished off later when the ink had dried by knocking out the background colour to bring the figure forward.
The model, incidentally, was the same guy who was on the BBC's 'The Big Painting Challenge' the other Sunday, demurely pre watershed in a loin cloth. Hehe.
At life drawing last week the models sat back to back, like 'bookends' the organiser called it.
A good challenge. Always pulls you up when you have two bodies in relation to each other, because of the relative positions, what looks good for one body you can see is wrong for the other. It is a very good way of keeping your eye relative.
Ah the memories that song brings back ! Those innocent days.
Tried to limit myself to one colour for this one, seeing how much depth I could get.
Alizarin crimson ( which I alway think should be the name of a Russian Cosmonaut. )
A friend has pointed out her armpit area should probably be darker, and he is right. But it was tricky to maintain the degrees of shade when the brush got to the point where it could only either put the paint on or take it off, but not layer it.
Maybe, now it has had a few days to dry it might take to a little additional shading.
