I decided to get today’s #30x30DirectWatercolour2018 out of the way before work. I haven’t made use of my little mannequin for a while so I set him on the windowsill and set to with some of the colours that had been sitting in my palette for a while:
I think they are probably all Royal & Langnickel paints – Rose, Violet and Yellow Ochre. Yellow ochre? Yes, mixed with violet to to produce the grey. These are decidedly not the colours I saw before me but the main focus of my exercise today was to use the brush to directly sculpt the shapes of the figure (shadows and then lighter areas) rather than to try drawing with the brush and then filling in.
