Figure Painting 101



I've recently been brave (or foolish) enough to try figure painting with watercolours. Being inspired by the bold colours of Charles Reid's figure paintings, I've definitely taken some liberties here. I do not profess to have anywhere near Charles Reid's capabilities, but hey, 'ya gotta start somewhere. Plus, slapping colour around is fun, and that's what really matters in the end.

Hi Jamie,

these watercolours are great - well done!

Also, I am almost done with my portfolio - so excited! Thanks again for showing us prospective students what it takes.
