Pensive – a new watercolor nude
Watercolor and Pencil on Paper
I’m having a lot of fun layering colors to create different effects in these watercolors. no doubt I’m breaking a million color rules, I never had much patience for the science of color theory. usually my system is to know the rules so that I know how and when to break them. to know them so well that usually obeying is second nature and breaking is a conscious decision. this is a good plan but lately I find I’ve been having so much more fun working on relaxing that old rulebook completely! I’m really happy with the combination of colors that have come about in this piece. I used a limited palette, but the blending has created some wonderful effects of warm and cool hues mixing together.
