Hi, first time posting in this section. I share most of my work in the watercolor area, but these are figures so I thought I share them here as well

Re: Some watercolor figures

These are great! Your lighting and shading are particularly effective, especially against a white background.

Hi Eric, i've seen your work before. Wonderful paintings. You should check out Pauline Adair's work. She does watercolor figure paintings as well. Thank you for sharing! -Earl

Re: Some watercolor figures

These are very nice. I'm trying to get my brain to understand the warm to cool usage you have mastered here.

Welcome Eric, you have the touch with watercolour. I see some proportional problems did you work from life or reference?

Thanks, I work off photo reference. I usually donít measure proportion very closely. If it looks good to me Iím fine. So there might be some parts thatís not that accurate 😛

I've seen far worse proportion errors, even from the great masters. With watercolour you only get one chance to get it right.

Re: Some watercolor figures

I'm a big fan of watercolor, and you have handled them well here. Flesh is sometimes hard in watercolor, but you have done well.
