Kathryn - sitting - watercolour on pencil
Today'soffering are three piictures of Model Kathryn. Two sitting on a chair and one standing back view.
Standing pose, pencil, pen/ink & watercolour
With the standing pose I made a mistake of trying to draw into the watercolour whilst it was still too wet and the ink spread. So after drying I needed to go back in and use a scalpel blade to "undo".

So last night saw a new model - Cat. But unfortunatley I was in a bit of pain standing at the easel and even had to leave the room a couple of times during the session. Therefore - didn't get the results which would normally please me.
watercolour, pencil & pen
left room during this one - so rushed a bit

The model last night was Beth. She was a really good model and with the choir noise in the background (the session takes place in the Quaker Hall and the choir practice next door), I quickly got in the zone.

One thing I am really pleased with though is that I received a new lens for my camera today as I have been trying to soilder-on with a poor lens for a while. I am really pleased with the rsults.
