Title: walking together
Year Created: 2003
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!
I first did a sketch of this watercolor from a magazine then I did the wash. I thought black and white was very effective the way they walked arm and arm together. It was in color and much much smaller than my painting.
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
use of contrast, brushwork

This is gorgeous as is. Very expressive. Full of life love and emotion.

Thank you Dianne:
I am self taught. Actually, when I arrived in Grenada after doing a transalantic on my 34foot sailboat Sparrow, I took up watercolor painting with my trusty crayola pan set.
I have taught myself anatomy by copying the models in magazines and trying to see how the body moves.
I can't get crayola pansets anymore. So I have been trying the tubes and also been experimenting with acrylic paints.
I am having lots of fun doing these paintings. I get very excited when I think I captured what I was after.
As you can see, I can go on forever.
Its great having someone to say hello to, also.
Bye for now. 2003Maryann:)

I know you said black and white, but what actual colour is the dark colour?
Is the depth of colour well represented on screen?
I was thinking maybe you are actually using a greater contrast?

Thank you each and every one for your wonderful comments.
Sorry I didn't answer sooner. I need to either row or put put to shore, walk to bus stop, catch bus in St. George, then try to get a computer at an internet station. I was about to answer everyone but my time was up and I had to go.
Thank again 2003Mary Ann
