I took a 15x20" piece of illustration board and quartered it for some figure studies. My goal was to get some reps in before Summer term begins at art school and to experiment with rendering and backgrounds. Each image is a 5x7" cropped version using pencil and watercolor. I've been sitting on them for the last day, trying to figure out how to create an unconventional and interesting background. I also want to find new ways to heighten the intensity of the figures. Hmmm. In progress.
