color me this . . . color me that . . . by myra anderson

Yes, in between the graphite drawings I believe that everyone would like to see some color somewhere - sometime!  It just occurred to me that if I want to get better at painting with watercolor - I need to paint more!  In this painting - again I did not draw the figure first.  I painted it with watercolor and then drew the few lines that you see.  As I paint more PLEASE be prepared for a thousand WOMEN FROM THE BACK!

Speaking of from the back, I generally just do one figure as you know.  How in the world could I do 'a gaggle' of people like this?  This artist (from Igor and Andre) is giving a class.  I just might take it.

PS Lisa I'm missing your art!

LOVE the pink skirt with the white top!! I honestly didn't know that you don't paint a lot. You draw more than paint? I didn't notice! Now I feel dumb. lol

Feel free to paint whatever you like..women from the back, front or side. It's your call..your blog..your time involved. :) I'll still visit no matter what.

omgosh..I saw that class earlier today, and posted it on FB. Only $25??!!
