New Watercolour Painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Demure", 8 x 12" image, watercolour
12 x 16" double matted $150 plus shipping and handling

This was a demo that I did for my advanced Watermedia class this week, from a model photo I had. The object of the lesson was to teach how to marry the figure and the ground from the first brushstrokes. The colours and values are gradually built up to their final results, letting each stage dry before beginning the next. It is not a very direct way to paint, but the only way I know of to model convincing form with exciting colour.

I am off to teach a weekend watercolour workshop to the Society of Western Canadian Artists in Edmonton. Until Monday then...

I love your picture, lots of live and personality to it. You certainly have the figure and background united together.
