Woman – 22 December 2011

Woman - 22 December 2011, India ink and watercolor on paper, 4"x6"

I’ve been doing this sort of grained-shading-style-painting here and there – where I sort of paint in vertical hatching which the way I very often draw. I described it here and here. I think it works well in this piece – it sort of shows planes where lighting hits various surfaces. I think this piece ended up in a fairly sweet spot between loose and tight – not overly labored, but not clumsy either.

This postcard-size figure is, nearly cliche in my work, the green woman built up over a Payne’s Gray wash background.
