Something new with figures

Last night's figure model was a dream! Kaj-Ann is a dancer and after he left our class, he was catching a red eye flight to New York to dance in an Off-Broadway show. His gestures were lovely, athletic, graceful, dynamic, gravity-defying!

I liked many of the drawings I did last night and wanted to try something new with them. I transferred a few of them to watercolor paper, pulled out my Charles Reid books and splashed a little paint. Not a big success yet, but the idea scratches an itch. I'm going to play with it more.

amazing how the gesture in both is so identical...and I like the colors.
