Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Figure sketches.

I haven't painted a figure in ages, so I figured why not jump back in with the most difficult substrate known to man. These are watercolor on yupo. The three figures were just painted off the cuff with no preliminary drawing. i tried to let the hard edges of the washes make some cool lines. The second was drawn out and used an expanded palette. Any preference for either approach? They are watercolors 9x12 on yupo. I was inspired by Wendy Artin's abstractish watercolor figures.

Re: Figure sketches.

Very nice. As to preference, it depends what you're trying to project. The first is more abstract and makes the women seem tortured. In your more carefully done second one she is relaxed, and it is very skillfully executed.

Re: Figure sketches.

These are excellent. You managed movement, expression by choosing a tough medium for this purpose. Well done.
