Day 1705 Gesture sketching.

On a piece of 15×22” Fluid cold press 140#

Love doing them. Always a lot of fun especially when they turn out well. These are each 4 min gesture sketches. I may go back and paint them when I have time.

Just like a tennis player artists need to limber and warm up before doing more formal work. They are a great warm up for drawing a more detailed artwork.

Off to a rocky start. Eeekk. And this is my second start. Sigh. What’s with that head.

Eventually I straightened her out I think. Well mostly. Definitely a big improvement from the rocky start.

I only used shadows- cerulean, burnt sienna and cobalt blue

skin – cad yellow pale and cad red light quin red on face.

Background is peacock blue and burnt sienna plus purple and ultramarine blue.
