At the moment I am on holiday from depicting acual figures and am working in watercolour & dip-pen to produce images of how the figure has been viewed by past cultures.
This two sketches are on A3 watercolour paper.

So I no longer o the Nudevember sketches - was the only person to complete everyday before I dropped out as I no longer wished to be associated with the group. I am pleased to have walked away from the group. But what to do instead? I was intrigued by images of male & female forms in original aztec carvings in a book I have - so using the photos as reference have decided to study the way they were made by sketching them in watercolour & pen.
This was a lot of fun.
