Sketch of a A Very Thin Woman by Sarah Sullivan

A Very Thin Woman

It was good to go to figure painting class today. The model was wonderful, she was older, had a soulful expression, and her thin limbs were interesting to sketch. Our goal was to paint directly on the paper without first making any sort of line with pen, pencil or paint. As we painted, we were to define the shapes using color, textures and amount of paint.

This is a gouache painting on black paper.
